A2 - A Spanish language edition trade paperback ex-library book in good+ to very good- condition. A tight, clean, sound copy in color wraps with minor overall shelf wear with the usual library stamps and label on the top outside paper edges and the copyright page. In recent years the Instituto Technológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey has invited some of the most brilliant, lucid and, for that matter, important writers and thinkers of today to participate in lectures and dialogues that are transmitted simultaneously to all the campuses of the institution. The 'Cuadernos' (Notebooks) of the Alfonso Reyes Chair are living thought, the transcript of the spoken word that is here shared in book form. Mario Vargas Llosa, one of the most important and prolific writers in Latin America gives us in 'Literature and Politics' profound reflections on the two core interests that have fed his life. Drawn by a passion for the quite and solitary work of the writer and, in turn, by the exaltation of social work and the din of the political rally. In his beautiful narrative fiction Vargas Llosa has created a body of work that goes unnoticed by no one because of his mastery and subtlety in handling language and the strength of the characters and events he narrates. The impression he has left on the world of politics has been equally important. His presidential bid against Fujimori and his consistent head-on questioning of the legitimacy of Fujimori's government have made his work as a essayist and politician definitive. Durante los últimos años el Instituto Technológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey ha invitado a algunos de los más brillantes, lúcidos y, por eso mismo, importantes escritores y pensadores de la actualidad a participar con conferencias magistrales y diálogos que se transmiten simultáneamente a todos los campus de la institución. Así, los 'Cuadernos' de la Cátedra Alfonso Reyes constituyen el pensamiento vivo, la transcripción de la palabra hablada que ahora se comparte en forma de libro. Mario Vargas Llosa, uno de los más importantes y prolíficos escritores de América Latina, nos entrega en 'Literatura y política' profundas reflexiones acerca de las dos vertientes que han puntuado, alimentado su vida. Tironeado por la pasión de trabajo solitario y callado del escritor y, a la vez, por la exaltación de la práctica social y el barullo del mitin, Vargas Llosa ha creado una obra que a nadie pasa inadvertida por su maestría y sutileza en el manejo del lenguaje; por la contundencia de sus personajes y los sucesos que narra, en fin, por su belleza narrativa. La impronta que ha dejado en el mundo de la política ha sido igualmente trascendente; su candidatura presidencial frente a Fujimori y su posterior permanente y frontal cuestionamiento acerca de la legitimidad de ese gobierno le han ubicado como un ensayista y político bien definido. 5.2"x8.3", indexado (indexed), 109 páginas (pages).
