"La Literatura es Fuego": Vargas Llosa's Reach

Mario Vargas Llosa's prolific career has yielded translations into a multitude of languages, countless interviews, and explorations of his work by scholars worldwide. The depth of his writing provides opportunity for rich critical interpretation, while his involvement with politics and current affairs add noteworthy layers to his biography.

Vargas Llosa argues that authors write to deal with their dissatisfaction with the world and to rebel against the constraints placed upon individuals by authoritative or oppressive institutions. Authors create a world that challenges reality; Vargas Llosa has created an intellectual atmosphere that inspires readers and encourages adaptation and exploration.
