Summary/Abstract: National historical empirics, often combined with the mythical code, has built into our prose a diverse set of topics by harmonizing different thematic units in different contexts and with different forms of narrative, that carry the poetry of this prose. Historical and spiritual conflicts, related to traditional psychology and real facts, generate subthemes, topics and ideas which when decoded, reveal the preoccupation of our writer. In recent years, we see a combination, a parallel between the themes of the past and the actuality, especially topics related to the current policy. A number of writers deal with the not -very -distant history-the last war in Kosovo in the context of inter-national problems that continue producing insecurity and bitterness. Those, for sure are the carriers of the author's reflections on the experiences of historical and contemporary individuals, but always with a tendency to reflect on civic ideas and freedom as a universal concept. By building a historical and fictional state, touching the limit of myth, it is revealed the goal of re-functionalizing of the history and mythology, reshaping of antiquity and identity in the service of the present. Topics of these novels are interethnic relations, dehumanization by politics, the missing persons from the war, Serbian myths, and especially the call for reconciliation, which is both a liberation of authors and their ideas for a global freedom. The advancement of our prose through these new novels is marked by the psychoanalytic approach of authors in the building of literary subjects, where the world of today's man, as a moving and inhibiting internal mechanism, has insecurity, stress, various crises and anxieties. These novels do not only have the value of readable novels, but by avoiding linearity, they manage to build subtext, narrative perspective, in addition to retrospectives, information, mythical meanings, making the narrative as a discourse, story, image and meaning.
