Summary/Abstract: Mitrush Kuteli's novels: "Si e gjeti Ago Jakupirrugën e Zotit" (How Ago Jakupi found God's way) and "E madhe është gjëma e mëkatit - Tat Tanushi i Bubutimës" (The curse of the sin - Tat Tanushi of Bubutima), tells us about the characters of Ago Jakupi and Tat Tanushi, protagonists created on the extraordinary play between life and death. The story about the priest and his woman and the story of the old man who seeks for the God's way, tells us about the sin and the price of it, the goods and the evils of the two characters, to whom God didn't take the souls. The two protagonists are punished by their creator with no death as a consequence of ignoring the doctrinal principles of life set up on Christian ethics, and the moral categories arising from the great cultural code of Bible. Heroes of the stories pray for the God's grace, they wish to die and seek death in order to be liberated from life, but they will undergo a great psychological tests, until the purification of the soul and its passage into the world beyond. The paper puts in front and compares two protagonists from the best novels of the author Mitrush Kuteli, trying to understand the dialogue between the two worlds, between life and death, with the aim to give a more understanding on the work of the author who wrote the theme of death in Modern Albanian Literature.
