Kristal analyses the entire corpus of Vargas Llosa’s writings, his literary influences in several languages, his intellectual biography, and his political activism, all in the light of the evolving political turbulence of his times and his own changing concept of literature.


Temptation of the Word… constitutes a new and original treatment of the subject and represents comparative literature at its traditional best. For those wishing to understand Vargas Llosa’s complete canon, there is simply nothing else like it.
