Nobel Prize for Literature 2010
And the Nobel Prize for Literature is announced in English, Swedish and Spanish…
The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2010 is awarded to the Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa “for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt, and defeat”. Llosa is only the second South American to win the coveted award in literature. “The Nobel Prize is not only a recognition of a writer and one work but also at the same time a recognition of the Spanish language,” Llosa said.
Llosa will receive the $1.5 million award on December 10 in Sweden. Check out the videos for the announcement, interview and media scrums! For more
