Irma Sokoli Bilali


This article aims to explore the creativity of an Albanian poet, prose writer and translator living in Italy, Arben Dedja.

Typology of the poetry of the poet Arben Dedja is seen in three levels within the three parts of “ The maintenance of masks” La manutenzione delle maschere (Mirëmbajtja e maskave). The first part of the poems can be labeled as "Self-portrait" where everything is permeated at the beginning of the memory where the howling of pain is felt;the continuity of poetry may be considered as a disclosure of cultural diversity; while the last piece is distinguished by the poetic prose as an experimentation of another type of literature where is characterized interliterarity phenomenon.
