Sweden: The 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature Mario Vargas LLosa.

Stockholm - Nobel Literature laureate Mario Vargas Llosa on Tuesday affirmed his love for writing and reading, hailed authors who have inspired him, and the value of freedom of speech and imagination. 
 
Mario Vargas LLosa. Mario Vargas was born in Peru where he studied law and literature. 
He and his wife moved to Paris in the 60's where he had his first breakthrough with his novel 'The Time of the Hero'. 
The story is based on his early experiences as a student in a Peruvian military school. It proved then to be very controversial in his homeland where a thousand copies of the novel were burned by the military school officials. 
Vargas has since authored more than thirty novels, plays and essays. Mario Vargas will be attending the Nobel Prize ceremony due in Stockholm on the 10th of December. 
Mario Vargas Llosa praises Latin America's democracy, but says dictatorships still exist.
Peruvian Nobel literature laureate Mario Vargas Llosa on Tuesday praised Latin America for becoming more democratic, but criticized Venezuela and Cuba and called the government's in Bolivia and Nicaragua "clownish."




In his Nobel lecture in Stockholm, the author said that "for the first time in our history, as in Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and almost all of Central America, we have a left and a right that respect legality, the freedom to criticize, elections, and succession in power."  Vargas Llosa, who made an unsuccessful run for Peru's presidency in 1990, urged Latin American leaders to stay on that path, combat corruption and continue to integrate with the world. Vargas Llosa is the first South American winner of the $1.5 million Nobel Prize in literature since Colombia's Garcia Marquez in 1982, and the first Spanish-language writer to win since Mexico's Octavio Paz in 1990.
