The Prometheus First Person in the Albanian Literature (The Case First Person in the Albanian Literature)

Skënder Karriqi


What we today call the aligned literature is closely linked to its origin with the birth of the Ancient Greek civilization, where the alignment of the writer for treating and solving the community problems was the outer and
the most important part of the civil alignment within a holist society. In such conditions of alignment, the poetics of the Prometheus first person would come forward. Not every Prometheus first person: when it is in relation to the community, then it is as such. On the contrary, when it is in relation to itself, it is an individualist person. So the first person respectively as a Prometheus first person or as individualistic marks the border between the traditional and modern. From antiquity until today, the Prometheus first person has a rich history of stylistic values which originate with Homer and, within the Greek antiquity ending with Aristophanes, to continue with Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe, and Byron, etc. In the Albanian literature the Prometheus first person, appears with Jeronim de Rada since his first creation, bringing, beyond the formal grammatical meanings, the activity image which becomes the reference of national historical action, the enlightenment. Our commentary has to do exactly with this stylistic feature of the literature of the National Renaissance. In this meaning the
arguments and facts from the poetry of N.Frashëri, Çajupi, and Mjeda.

Keywords: aligned literature, Prometheus first narrative person, community, enlightenment, activist.
