Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa, one of the most acclaimed writers in the Spanish-speaking world, won the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday. The Swedish Academy said it honoured the 74-year-old author "for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt and defeat." Vargas Llosa has written more than 30 novels, plays and essays,including Conversation in the Cathedral and The Green House. Vargas Llosa is the first South American winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature since it was awarded to Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez in 1982.
