Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to consider the concept of "the other" in the work of Migjeni.Within the course of the many thematic, formal and, in general, aesthetic innovations that Migjeni brought to the Albanian literature of the 1930s, one can note the presence and even the exclusionary presence of the characters that may be called "the others".Since the term "the other" consists only of the half of the dichotomy "I-he/she (the other) and we-they (the others)", as well as the synonymous subordinate meanings of the "other" as, "the foreigner" "the different", "the outsider", "the alien", and also "the harmful", "the dangerous" etc., to Migjeni the apparent presence of this "other" encourages you to look at this dimension.Especially when we look at the historical context when his works were created, where such characters in Albanian literature did not seem to have been present.With "the others" in Migjeni's work, we will not understand only the idea of creating different personalities/characters in the field of Albanian literature of this period, but in the "others" we will see his conscious selection to build his work by making present the poetics for the "other", a marginalised one, an attempt that can simultaneously bring the periphery to the center, or move the center to the periphery, ie to "others" where the Albanian literature had not yet gone, and where Migjeni went by gathering all of that which M. Foucault calls "the plebeian" in a way to give them a voice to speak for themselves.
