Summary/Abstract: From the very beginning of its existence literary narration developed thematic substance, subjects and characters from folklore, transforming them in many cases. At other times, those elements were left the way they were found in oral history. In our case, we shall deal with two forms of transposition of oral narration in written form, but only referring to thematic transformations and stylistic and explicit usage of this literature by Albanian novelists, that is, by the most renowned ones like Ismail Kadare, Rexhep Qosja and Anton Pashku. These are the authors who use folkloric archetype in their novels on three levels; as thematic reiteration (I. Kadare - “The Three- Arched Bridge” and “Doruntine”), as folkloric discourse (A. Pashku - “Oh”) and as explicit and cited regeneration of folklore (R. Qosja - “Death Comes to Me From Such Eyes” and “One Love and Seven Sins”).
