Since ancient times scholars and kings have been curious to know which language is older. Language, this foundation of identity, a symbol of Albanians, can not stay out of the interest of Albanian scholars, but above all foreigners such as Leibnitz, Mathurin Veyssiere La Croze (Matura, Vesijer la Kroz), L. Lamouche (Leon Lamosh), George von Hahn, Frantz Bopp, Norbert Jokli, Tagliavini, Gustav Mayer, Norbert Jokly, etc., who studied the origin and antiquity of the Albanian language, based on archaeological facts and arguments and ancient manuscripts. But the study and above all the love for the language, will not escape the pen of Albanian poets, such as Fishta, Naimi, Samiu, Noli, Mjedja, Vasa, Poradeci, they weave verses that climb like a spiral towards the sky, as a testament of the continuity of the nation, with a prominent emphasis on raising national consciousness. Their poetic world sails in a spirit of patriotism, where the love for the land is felt, the people, where they give orders to shake the imaginations that are foreign and annoying, for them, they live in a war ecstasy, strengthen the limbs, shoot, drive and the wolves are frightened, they do not bow before the enemies and so they move forward with pride ... Nothing can stop them from the ideal that has conquered them. These poems are a faithful reflection of the complex vitality, of the lively and noble vitality to preserve those original qualities, to fulfill their mission! Their poems are captivated by a sincere inspiring lyricism, which is expressed with bright images of the past that is today but also the future.
