Professor John King from the University of Warwick is a distinguished scholar of Latin American literature and culture. He has also been the most important translator of Mario Vargas Llosa's essays in the last twenty years. In this seminar he will discuss the significance of translation in the intellectual trajectory of Mario Vargas Llosa. Professor King will discuss his own translation process on an author whose writings have addressed historical, political and artistic developments of our time; but he will also discuss the ways in which the creative fiction by Vargas Llosa has been translated over the years.  After a formal presentation, the event will become an opportunity to engage in a discussion with one of the premier critics of our discipline.
