Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Mario Vargas Llosa is a Peruvian writer, politician and winner of the Nobel Prize. He is a firm believer of Write What You Know and tends to do the research of the subject he’s writing about.

His critics still debate whether he is a modernist or postmodernist. Better not to get caught in the middle.

Some of his books have been adapted to the big screen, Your Mileage May Vary regarding their quality.

He started being a leftist person, and even supported Castro’s government, before he became disillusioned with his dictatorship. Since then, he has allied with more centre-right politics. He competed for the presidency of his country in the early ‘90s, but was defeated by the Ensemble Darkhorse Alberto Fujimori [1].

He’s also the guy who said that Mexico “is the perfect dictatorship.” Of course, that was back then in 1990. He also got in a fight with his once-friend Gabriel Garcia Marquez for some reason and they haven’t spoken to each other since then.

His bibliography includes:
