Literary Evolution of Murat Isaku’s Lyrics


  • Arlind Farizi


Back in the sixties of the 20th century, when in the heart of Phenomenology was developed the theory of reception of Hans Robert Jauss32 and it was promoted the notion of Alterity (otherness)33. According to this viewpoint the phenomenon of “literary evolution” was seen as a change, or permanent transformation of literary awerness. Literary consciousness is relative to what was found also the answer to the question why literary works that follow are not neither better nor worse from the previous ones, but are different. Books do not change, but readers do. Thus, in the science of literature these literary works were disused due to unwanted connotations, not only the biological term “evolution” and the economic term “development” but also the social term “revolution” and instead of them, in the post-modern period began to be used terms, such as: “transformation”, “innovative process”, ”dynamics”, “change”. With this parantheses we have accessed in one of the main problems of life and functioning of literary art of the word. In the poetries of Murat Isaku “Literary Evolution” is implied the transformation, change, the aesthetic evolution of the poetry from the first collection “Zani i Malit” (1960) (The Mountain Echo) within the system of the certain poetry and how it changes despite time conventions up to the last collection of poetries “M’i këpusin kokrrat e frymës (2007).” (They’re plucking out my few deep breaths).

Keywords: lyrics, reidentification, transformation, literary evolution, gratitude, Murat Isaku.
