Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Liosa wins Nobel Prize in Literature

Baku – APA. Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa won the Nobel Prize in literature.

Announcing the award in Stockholm, the Swedish Academy praised Mr. Vargas Llosa “for his cartography of the structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt and defeat.” Vargas Llosa, 74, is one of the most celebrated writers of the Spanish-speaking world, frequently mentioned with his contemporary Gabríel Garcia Márquez, who won the literature Nobel in 1982, the last South American to do so. He has written more than 30 novels, plays and essays, including “The Feast of the Goat” and “The War of the End of the World.” Vargas Liosa is a member of the Spanish Royal Academy, and honorary member of a number of European and American universities.
