Peru's Vargas Llosa wins 2010 Nobel literature prize

STOCKHOLM, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa won the 2010 Nobel prize for literature, the awarding committee said on Thursday.

The committee said in a statement Vargas Llosa received the award “for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt and defeat”.

The prize of 10 million Swedish crowns ($1.50 million) was the fourth of this year’s Nobel prizes, following awards for medicine on Monday, physics on Tuesday and chemistry on Wednesday.
