Faik Konica (1875-1942)
Konica was often scathing and heavily sarcastic in his articles about the backwardness of Albanian culture, but his passion for change was rooted in a love for his country’s traditions and ancient texts.
His legacy, in the words of French poet Guillaume Apollinaure, was to have ‘turned a rough idiom of sailor’s inns into a beautiful, rich and supple language’.
