The Nobel prize for literature has been awarded to Mario Vargas Llosa "for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt, and defeat".
Vargas Llosa, a peruvian and part of what has been called the “Boom” generation of writers from Latin America, is a prolific author of novels, essays and plays. He has also been involved in Peruvian politics, unsuccessfully running for president.
