This paper addresses the issue of identity in the contemporary Macedonian literature. This problem is considered through several aspects: the quest of man/character to his roots, plunge into the past of their ancestors, then a desperate need of the character to preserve the values that are rooted in them and their genetic structure, the tradition, desire and man’s/character`s insistence to affirm themselves as one who is foundation for the existence of every other man and eventually an identity erosion. The question of identity in the contemporary Macedonian literature is a very frequent matter of concern. Because of this indisputable fact, the main issues of this research paper are the general characteristics of the identity question and their reflection in the works of the Macedonian contemporary writers. There are numerous examples that dealt with this issue. Very important in this matter are the novels “Pirej” by Petre M. Andreevski, “Pasija po Matej” by Hristo Krstevski, “Bunar” by Dimitar Bashevski, “Crno seme” by Tashko Georgijevski, “Razboj” by Vlado Maleski and many others.
