Summary/Abstract: The Albanian literature of Macedonia has its tradition: starting with the renaissance writer Josif Bageri, it was consolidated with Murat Isaku, Abdylaziz Islami and Adem Gajtani, and it continues with Luan Starova, Kim Mehmeti, Resul Shabani, Xhabir Ahmeti, Lulzim Haziri, Salajdin Salihu, Lindita Ahmeti, Lindita Aliu, etc. All these writers have contributed on surviving of the Albanian literature in a country where Albanian language is not their official language. To illustrate the surviving of this literature we will analyze four of these writers (two novelists and two poets) who can be considered as representatives of the current Albanian literature in Macedonia, thanks to whom this literature has proved new literary poetics.
