Mario Vargas Llosa: An Intellectual Journey
By Julio H. Cole
This article appeared in the Summer 2011 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

An admirer of the Cuban Revolution until well into his career, Nobel laureate novelist and essayist Mario Vargas Llosa has become the most prominent exponent of classical liberalism in the Spanish-speaking world. His political migration away from the left reflects his gradual disenchantment with ideology and fanaticism, themes reflected in his great novels The War at the End of the World and The Real Life of Alejandro Mayta.
