Nobel Committee Awards Latin American Writer Mario Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas Llosa

This year’s 2010 Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Peruvian Writer Mario Vargas Llosa. The news made not only Peru but also all Latin American countries feel full of pride and happiness. A gifted story-teller in the Spanish language, Vargas Llosa’s style has been controversial and political.  He ran for the Peruvian presidency in 1990 and lost the race against Alberto Fujimori.

Vargas Llosa has written more than 30 novels, plays and essays, including “Conversation in the Cathedral” and “The Green House.” In 1995, he won the Cervantes Prize, the most distinguished literary honor in Spanish.

After critics called the Academy “Eurocentric” for giving the prize to Europeans for many years, this year they turned our way and recognized a Spanish-speaking writer with the most prestigious award in literature.

The streets in Latin America turned loud and are celebrating the Literature Nobel with joy. Let’s enjoy the award and hope the Spanish speaking world keeps getting attention from institutions as honorable as the Alfred Nobel Prize for Literature.
