A Prince of the Church on the Nobel Literature Laureate

His Eminence Juan Luis Cardinal Cipriani Thorne hails Mario Vargas Llosa as "a man that [sic] preaches liberty, democracy, and he preaches it with a valiant and open spirit," and said the prize was "deserved" and that the "Christian spirit" inspires his thought — Lima's Cardinal Praises Values of Vargas Llosa: "Capable in the use of the most varied narrative techniques, Vargas Llosa knew how to pass in his novels from the closed and degraded spaces of the big cities to the great open scenes of the Peruvian landscape, manifesting always a great creative capacity, and always placing the human person at the center of his works."
