"The Highland Lute" is considered to be a masterpiece in Albanian Literature, and not only. I have read/studied this for my Advanced Literature Class.

Fishta has created some characters that can be divided in two groups: mythological and real. Still, the difference between these two groups is not that big, in fact it is not big at all.

This is not a light read. You must have time and the right focus to truely enjoy and understand it correctly.
