Summary/Abstract: In this article, the novel “Shkëlqimi dhe rënia e shokut Zylo”, is called like the masterpiece of novelist Dritëro Agolli, even one of the masterpieces of albanian and balkanic prose. This is explained, from one side, with meaningful message of the work: the condemnation of buzen crazy of the life in dictatorship, an unusual case but essential and, at the same time, the spiritual eviction of people, affirmation of incapable person who earn in the war against the able ones and, in consequence, the creation of prototypes of bureaucrats and serviles. On the other side, the high value of the novel, is argued in esthetic plan with the harmonisation between message and form where is smelt the psychologisation, social character, satire and humour, that arrives the highest level, in this work of Agolli. Moreover, this novel is looked as a disident one, perhaps without the consciencity of the author on this, as a case in which the esthetic disidence, the breaking of rules of socialist realism, is transformed in ideologic plan. On this theses is argued with other scholars. In supporting of these theses are given many arguments from the same work which is read in textocentric plan, but in the same time is put in the frame of Agolli’s novels and albanian prose of the time. In this novel are seen, behind formal shield of socialist realism the elements of critic realism, which predominate some modernist teomquest, too. So, we arrive in conclusion that the most important result if this satiric novel is the creation if types who have survived the time and are transformed in synonof the bureaucrats and servile, Zylo and Demka.
