Latin American and Peruvian Literature

Latin American Culture

LATIN AMERICAN AND PERUVIAN LITERATURE

During the sixties the literature of Latin America became well known in the Western world, especially when authors of the “Magic Realism” as Gabriel García Márquez (Colombia, 1928) and Mario Vargas Llosa (Peru) published their most well known books. Especially Cien Años de Soledad (Hundred Years of Solitude, 1967) became world famous and has been translated in several languages. He got the Nobel Price for Literature in 1982 and is still a very popular writer. After García Márquez, it was Isabel Allende (Chile) that continued the tradition of the magical realism. Her la Casa de los Espíritus (The house of the spirits) takes place during the years of the regime of Salvador Allende (1970 – 1973), just before the Chilian dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.

But even before Márquez, Vargas Llosa and Isabel Allende, it were Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda, two Chilean Nobel Prices, that became world famous with their poems.
