This paper takes into consideration the issue of how much the mythical matter is transformed into dramatic literature matter in Albanian drama and literature. We will only talk about this aspect in our analysis regarding various dramas that have been selected. The purpose of this paper is to emphasize a very specific and identifiable aspect, where the drama naturally tends towards the myth.
The method used is the textual analysis of the mythological archetypes in Albanian drama and literature. Albanian and non-Albanian mythology in the modern Albanian drama, with the rituals and beliefs that it has used, with different figures that it has collected from the popular mentality, from the psychology on how highly most of the psychological phenomena are considered and evaluated, has served not only to increase the level of emotions of the works, not just the power of suggestion or surprise.
The results of our analysis shows that while maintaining individual experiences, we can try to embody the myth, to wear his uncomfortable clothes enabling thus the perception in the light of contemporary experience, the relativity of our problems, their relationship with “roots” and the relativity of “roots” itself.
As a conclusion we can state that only in relation to this broad and complex significance as defined by the literal meaning and its under tones, the dramatic situation and the progress of action, from the symbols and the actions of the characters, the reader can turn to himself, to his time to reflect on these two together.
Key words: mythology, drama, Albania, Kosovo, folklore, heritage.
