develop and support artists
Literature Was written in Standard English now a
movement to write in the standard language of

Like These, The Festival of SanJoaquin
Painters Eduardo Kingman Camilio Egas, have
indigenous backgrounds and have used indigenous
subjects to portray suffering and
oppression. Oswaldo Guayasamin most
controversial and best known, his works portray
social or political protest but often with rather
ugly depictions of indigenous people. One portion
of his mural in the Congress building in Quito
shows a skeleton wearing a helmet that says the
letters CIA, meaning the U.S. Central
Intelligence Agency. This
created a huge argument. The U. AS. Ambassador
called for the letters to be painted out, and
there was a discussion about cutting aid to
Ecuador, but in the end the painting remained.
Literature Mario Vargas Llosa novelist born in
1936 is one of the most famous Peruvians of
recent times. He studied at San Marcos Univesity
in Lima. His themes are based on his life in
Peru. Conversation in the Cathedral is his most
well known work. In 1990 he tried to become
elected President of Peru. After being defeated
he left to be in Spain.
Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa is so many
things he is best described as a modern-day
Renaissance man. Politician, playwright, art,
film and literature critic and essayist, he is
perhaps best known as one of a handful of
novelists that have brought contemporary Latin
American literature to the forefront

Jose Belloni
Painters Leonor Fini Born in Buenos Aires in
1907 of an Italian mother and Argentinian father
whom she never knew, Drawing was an important
part of her life and her extraordinary
draughtsmanship is marked by rapid, vibrant,
sharply incisive strokes of a fine pen. Leonor
was a born story-teller, both in conversation and
in the many tales, memoir-fragments, prose-poems
and three "novels" that she wrote beginning in
the early seventies. Jose Maria
Villafuerte paints in the style, vintage

Poets 2 Nobel Prize winners for
literature Gabriela Mistral a school teacher
who wrote lyric poetry about lost love and
everyday country people
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1945
"for her lyric poetry which, inspired by powerful
emotions, has made her name a symbol of the
idealistic aspirations of the entire Latin
American world"
Gabriela Mistral (pen-name of Lucila Godoy y
Alcayaga) Chile b. 1889d. 1957
Gabriela Mistral Banquet Speech
(Translation) Gabriela Mistral's speech at the
Nobel Banquet at the City Hall in Stockholm,
December 10, 1945Today Sweden turns toward a
distant Latin American country to honour it in
the person of one of the many exponents of its
culture. It would have pleased the cosmopolitan
spirit of Alfred Nobel to extend the scope of his
protectorate of civilization by including within
its radius the southern hemisphere of the
American continent. As a daughter of Chilean
democracy, I am moved to have before me a
representative of the Swedish democratic
tradition, a tradition whose originality consists
in perpetually renewing itself within the
framework of the most valuable creations of
society. The admirable work of freeing a
tradition from deadwood while conserving intact
the core of the old virtues, the acceptance of
the present and the anticipation of the future,
these are what we call Sweden, and these
achievements are an honour to Europe and an
inspiring example for the American
continent.The daughter of a new people, I
salute the spiritual pioneers of Sweden, by whom
I have been helped more than once. I recall its
men of science who have enriched its national
body and mind. I remember the legion of
professors and teachers who show the foreigner
unquestionably exemplary schools, and I look with
trusting love to those other members of the
Swedish people farmers, craftsmen, and
workers.At this moment, by an undeserved stroke
of fortune, I am the direct voice of the poets of
my race and the indirect voice for the noble
Spanish and Portuguese tongues. Both rejoice to
have been invited to this festival of Nordic life
with its tradition of centuries of folklore and
poetry.May God preserve this exemplary nation,
its heritage and its creations, its efforts to
conserve the imponderables of the past and to
cross the present with the confidence of maritime
people who overcome every challenge.My
homeland, represented here today by our learned
Minister Gajardo, respects and loves Sweden, and
it has sent me here to accept the special honour
you have awarded to it. Chile will treasure your
generosity among her purest memories.
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1971
"for a poetry that with the action of an
elemental force brings alive a continent's
destiny and dreams"
