Summary/Abstract: Discursive Autobiographies are type of texts in which life experiences are written about tempted creations. Discursive Autobiographies are metadiegetic analepsis 'lands' that disclose personal experience of the process of creation, where communication occurs also the form of metacommunication, above all, the text as autometatext. In such cases, the authors, while talking about their work and creation process, create a kind of autobiographical prose more or less essayistic with autometatext status, text where even the deeper cogitation interpretation and criticism, empirical practice keeps the genre of autobiography. As proven, this prose model is written only at the end literary creation, especially when the author becomes authority in literature. Such temptation was proved in two discursive autobiographies of Kadare: Invitation in studio and Mornings in Cafe Le Rosand, where literature talks about literature. Diptych in question, apart from the author’s revelation the work, we are faced with the re-examination of relationship between authorial literature and of universal literature, sometimes as reading experience, sometimes as writing experience with variety of literary interferences.
