Summary/Abstract: Seen in the historical and chronological context of writing and the historical content of themes, the concept on the other in the Albanian novel is generally constructed according to three main types: in the national arena (where the national context of rejection is displayed): in the East/West “contact area”, which displays and preserves the anthropological and historical context of reflection; in the total dimension (universal of invasion); as well as in three contexts: from the position of the narrator / author (Kadare, Krasniqi, Kraja, Fetiu), from the political context of reflection on the history of a particular period: (Spasse, Kadare, Marko, Drini etc.) and in the context of a genre (Agolli, Kallamata etc.). In this research, the concept on the other is also built in the vertical historical/civilization context, constructed according to at least 3 paradigms: language, religion, and civilization. It is on these preconditions and paradigms that the best novels of historical themes in Albanian literature were built during the entire XX century, and within them, the reports with the other have been contextualized and reshaped.
