Mario Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas Llosa is a Peruvian writer, politician, journalist and essayist laureate. Martio Vargas Llosa won the Nobel Prize 2010.

Biography

Vargas Llosa is one of Latin America's most acclaimed writer and essayist, and one of the leading authors of his generation. Many consider Vargas Llosa to have had a larger international impact and worldwide audience than any other writer of the Latin American Boom. He was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt, and defeat".

Vargas Llosa made his debut in the 1960s with novels such as The Time of the Hero (La ciudad y los perros, literally The City and the Dogs, 1963/1966), The Green House (La casa verde, 1965/1968), and the monumental Conversation in the Cathedral (Conversación en la catedral, 1969/1975). Through his carrer he divided himself across an array of literary genres, including literary criticism and journalism. His works include comedies, murder mysteries, historical novels, and political thrillers. Many of his novels have been cinematized.

  • Captain Pantoja (in 2000) 
  • Tune in Tomorrow (Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter)

Many of Vargas Llosa's works are influenced by the writer's perception of Peruvian society and his own experiences as a native Peruvian. Increasingly, however, he has expanded his range, and tackled themes that arise from other parts of the world. Another change over the course of his career has been a shift from a style and approach associated with literary modernism, to a sometimes playful postmodernism.
Like many Latin American authors, Vargas Llosa has been politically active throughout his career; over the course of his life, he has gradually moved from the political left towards the right. While he initially supported the Cuban revolutionary government of Fidel Castro, Vargas Llosa later became disenchanted. He ran for the Peruvian presidency in 1990 with the center-right Frente Democrático (FREDEMO) coalition, advocating neoliberal reforms. He has subsequently supported moderate conservative candidates.

Mario Vargas Llosa is 74 years old, and has during his carrer written more than 30 novels, essays and plays. Among his works, the most famous are probably

  • The Time of The Hero
  • Conversation in the Cathedral
  • The Green House

SR, Mario Vargas Llosa:

Mi interés de contactarlo es por que soy partidaria de la Ecología, y me he enterado que Usted al igual que ami nos preocupa nuestro Mundo,. Por tal razón quiero compartir con Usted un proyecto muy grande y de bienestar al

planeta, se trata del pañal ecológico de bambú, las cifras son alarmantes ya que un bebe requiere aproximadamente 7,500 pañales, y hablando de personas adultas o enfermas en un periodo de cuatro años requiere 5,840 pañales, imagínese el daño infectocontagioso, al que el ser humano esta expuesto.

Porque Usted ha de saber que para que un pañal desechable tarda 500 años en Degradarse., es por esta razón mi urgencia de poder tener comunicacion con Usted.

Gracias.

Atte.

Por favor necesito con urgencia contactar con el señor Vargas LLosa para invitarlo a dictar una conferencia en Colombia, para el congreso Latinoamericano "Cartagena Inspira", Comunicación, Creatividad, Innovación y Mercadeo.

El evento está organizado por la Unión Colombiana de Empresas Publicitarias -UCEP-, la Asociación Nacional de Anunciantes -ANDA-, la Asociación Nacional de Medios de Comunicación -ASOMEDIOS- y la Asociación Nacional de Diarios -ANDIARIOS-, asociaciones gremiales que representan el 95% de la industria Publicitaria en Colombia. Este año y después de 38 años de historia del Congreso Colombiano de Publicidad, el evento será Latinoamericano; congregará a cerca de 2000 personas de la industria de la economía naranja de diversos países latinos y los conferencistas serán figuras de primer nivel y esperamos contar con la honrosa presencia del señor Vargas Llosa, en relación con sus planteamientos en el ensayo "La sociedad del espectáculo"

Les agradezco infinitamente si pueden ayudarme. monica.trujillo.ucep@outlook.com

Un escritor anglófilo que vive obsesionado por lo extranjero.

Aburrido, tedioso, mediocre, y además vive haciédole propaganda al extranjero.

Mr Llosa.

Please bear in mind that Mexicans are not the responsibility of Amerca. That's another country. If someone lives here or is here legally, those folks ARE our responsibility. Mr. Trump may never be president and that's ok...we are a democracy. But I would suggest that Latinos should vote against someone because they disagree with their ideals...or vice versa and not because they don't understand what a candidate is saying. All Americans should put America first ...however you choose to do that.

Thank you.

Lástima que el faro del imperialismo español (castellano) le deslumbre y le impida ver claramente. Quién pudiera apagarlo.
