Instructional Method: Online. Mario Vargas Llosa (3) In 2010, the Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa "for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt, and defeat." As the author whose first novel, The Time of the Hero (La ciudad y los perros), started what would be known as the "boom" of Latin American novels of the 1960s and 70s, Vargas Llosa has long been the most internationally recognizable Peruvian artist, one for whom literature and politics, both the right and the left, are linked. This course surveys Vargas Llosa's major works, along with the political, historical, and literary contexts in which they were written and read. In the process, the class examines the effects of literary prizes and international readership on the canonization process; put another way, it looks at what makes a "major author" in a contemporary context.
