About the Author: Mario Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas Llosa, born in Peru in 1936, is the author of some of the most significant writing to come out of South America in the past fifty years His novels include The Green House, about a brothel in a Peruvian town that brings together the innocent and the corrupt The Feast of the Goat, a vivid re creation of the Dominican Republic during the final days of General Rafael Trujillo s insidious regime and Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, a comedic semi autobiographical account of an aspiring writer named Marito Varguitas, who falls in love with Julia, the divorced sister in law of his Uncle Lucho He is also a widely read and respected essayist, writing everything from newspaper opinion pieces to critical works on other writers, including The Perpetual Orgy on Flaubert.Vargas Llosa is also active outside the literary arena, and was a serious contender for the presidency of Peru in 1990 eventually losing to the now disgraced Alberto Fujimori , an experience he documented in his memoir, A Fish in the Water On the controversial nature of some of his work he said, The writer s job is to write with rigor, with commitment, to defend what they believe with all the talent they have I think that s part of the moral obligation of a writer, which cannot be only purely artistic I think a writer has some kind of responsibility at least to participate in the civic debate I think literature is impoverished, if it becomes cut from the main agenda of people, of society, of life He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for the year 2010, for his cartography of structures of power his trenchant images of the individual s resistance, revolt, and defeat.http us.macmillan.com author mariov

    Another piece of marvelous historical fiction like The War at the End of the World, Dream of the Celt follows the historical figure of Roger Casement through his humanitarian odysseys to horrors committed by Belgian colonizers and rubber barons in Congo to the atrocities committed by Peruvian colonizers and rubber barons of ia The latter certainly overlaps with the events described in The Green

    Curb Your EnthusiasmRoger Casement had consistently disappointing experience with modern institutions His work as a shipping clerk in a private firm in Liverpool had no adventure His time as an adventurer in the Congo for the Belgian monarch lacked humanity His diplomatic efforts as part of the British government on behalf of humanity had little practical success And his association with the ultimately s

    Roger Casement by Sarah Purser, oil on canvasHmm Fictionalised biography Is it a good idea Can it be successful How best should it be done The Dream of the Celt caused me to ask myself such questions and .The way I understand the genre of fictionalised biography, the author gets to create memories for his subject, to reveal intimate details about his life, to attribute motives to his actions, to put words in his

    Roger Casement was an Irishman who famously revealed the atrocities in the rubber industries in, first, the Congo and, then, thein the early 1900s He saw a similarity in the mistreatment of the natives in Africa and South America to the British suffocation of Ireland and made the latter his final cause Unwisely, he courted Germany during the First World War, hoping to link with England s enemy in what he thought a common cause He

    The list of atrocities committed by short, ugly men with sexual complexes and inhuman proclivities means that evil is legion it is omnipresent and as real today as 100 years ago One of the great anti colonial fighters and defenders of human rights and indigenous cultures of his time, and a sacrificed combatant for the emancipation of Ireland 354 is the man, Roger Casement MVL hooked himself another incredible biography this time to cement

    I had about a 500 word review of this novel written when my computer decided to restart of its own volition Ugh So let me recap what I was going to say, in brief.Things with any version of Celt in the title are usually campy garbage this is not Historical fiction is usually just studied nostalgia this is not This is a vibrant, sensitive, nuanced portrait of an intriguing figure, Sir Roger Casement, offering a fair account of his life, relatively fr

    I am ready to bestow on Mario Vargas Llosa the title of most disappointing author I ever read Maybe my mistake was to start reading him with The War of the End of the World, because none of his books that I read since have been able to match that first experienceThe Dream of the Celtwas certainly well researched, but maybe this is where the problem with this book lies The story follows Roger Casement, the humanist and Irish loyalist who was sentenced to be

    I don t recall ever reading anything by Nobel Prize winner Vargas Llosa before, so I can t compare this historical novel and thinly disguised biography to his other work, but the subject the life of Sir Roger Casement is one which interests me deeply Adam Hochschild s 1998 book of the Congo,
