Project Description

Teki Dervishi was born in town of Gjakovo (Kosovo) in 1943. After the studies at The University of Prishtina, (The Institute of Philosophy and Literature) he has worked as a litterary critic, essayist and theater-critic in several Albanian newspapers and magazines. However, what makes Teki Dervishi a prominent intellectual is certainly his litterary work, as well as his anticommunist attitude of a real political dissident. As early as in the beggining of sixties, because of his political beliefs, he was imprissoned by the Yugoslav regime and spent 3 years of his life in one the most notorious communist prisons of the time called “Goli Otok” (“Naked Island”, a prison which probably respond to the Russian version of Stalin’s labour camps or “Gulags”).
Teki Dervishi is the author of 18 dramatical pieces as well as the author of a great number of novels, books of poetry, short stories and essays on literature and theater. A great number of fragments taken from his books has already been translated to a number of European languages.
