In this article our primary objective is to identify thematic of poetry works published by young female poets of Kosovo in the years 1990-1999. The process of writing and publishing of poetry pieces by young female poets in this period marks an important moment in the history of the Albanian literature specifically for the thematic utilized in the poems. Gender issues, concerns about the unequal position vis-a-vis man in the society, other concerns from everyday life in Kosovo, fragments from specific periods of national history, global issues of socio-cultural background etc., are among the main poetry composition thematic of female poets that started their poetic career in the last decade of XX century. Apart from thematic novelties, poetic works of young female poets are highly organized in the poetic design. Lyrical elements are noticed mainly in the poems with personal and contemporary thematic characterized by metonymical and melancholic discourse, very often with revolt oriented tonality and with the absence of joy. On the other hand, the dramatic discourse, the one that deals with pain and lamentation is enshrined within the thematic that deals with the fate of the Albanian nation throughout centuries. In terms of stylistic organization and contribution, the most admired and used figures by female poets of this period are metaphor, allegory, epithet, allusion, whereas in the poems with national thematic we notice the presence of the figure of hyperbole.
