Vargas Llosa and his historical omissions

studying once more Paul Gauguin, we reread the book by Mario Vargas Llosa, published in 2003, and entitled: “Paradise on the other corner” (386 pages), where the Peruvian-Spanish author narrates two supposedly historical and/or fictional stories. just the imagination It allows to demarcate one path from the other. We recommend it instead of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Wasap.

In one of those two stories, it seems to narrate the life of the painter French Paul Gauguin fictitiously and involves our beloved Panamathe land that saw us born and that is why we are going to write this article, without neglecting that at a given moment, also it involves Simón Bolívar and excludes Panama as a Bolivarian country. We will claim that below.

Rafael Conte from the newspaper El País in Spain, wrote this about this work by MV Llosa:Given the mastery of Vargas Llosathe result is not that it is valuable, but that it is fascinating, it is not a great novel but two great novels, two historical narratives….. Masterful book….”

we will retain of the countryman of Vargas Llosas, the Spanish journalist Conte, “two historical narratives” and we want to make an observation to MVL on behalf of Panamanian history.

At the beginning of his work, M Vargas L writes the following: “he was reluctant to give you a bottle, that man who spent hours in his study reading chronicles of French travelers by the Peru, Don Mariano who came to visit the young Simón Bolívar, future Liberator of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru”. And Panama 10-11-1821?

Here in this last line, the Peruvian-Spanish who will be a nonagenarian, the same year that the Bicentennial of the Anfictionic Congress of Panama (1826-2026), ordered by Simón Bolívar to unite all the Bolivarian peoples in a federated America for the common good, or he made a mistake or exaggerated the fiction in his work, since left out PANAMA, among the countries that the Liberator Simón Bolívar liberated.

We don’t want to think that just like Gauguin, the Nobel Prize would be under the effects of “absinthe” or he was disturbed at that moment by a “trou de mémoire”, but it is that PANAMA It is so important that even the Liberator said when he convened the amphictyonic congress: «It seems that if the world had to choose its capital, the Isthmus of Panama would be designated for this august destination, placed as it is, in the center of the globe, looking from a part the Asia, and on the other Africa and Europe», and we imagined that despite his fiction, the Nobel Prize winner should be aware of all this.

Did Don Mario know this? Then: Why did he omit the Isthmus?

With all the respect that the laureate Spanish-American writer deserves, Panama also deserves an explanation of Vargas Llosathat you should write to the Panamanian people who love and appreciate you so much: Why did you leave out the name of Panama in the list of countries liberated by Simon Bolivar?

Writings of fiction or reality, history or legend, false or true, Panama is a Bolivarian country by right own, and we are going to explain it below via an express telegram to the illustrious Spanish-American citizen, who is Mario Vargas Llosa Nobel Prize for Literature.

On November 10, 1821, almost three years before the battle of Junín (1824) in the magical country of origin of Mr. Vargas Llosa, a handful of illustrious citizens, in the Heroica Villa de Los Santos, wrote about the Act that proclaimed INDEPENDENCE of the country that today holds the illustrious Vargas Llosa, that Panama became independent from Spain and momentarily joined the ideal of Simon Bolivar, the Liberatorto make the Bolivarian cause thicker and more efficient.

Panamanians have always been supportive and Bolivar knew it.

Those illustrious citizens of Santeño origin, before they liberated Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, they had already freed themselves from the oppressive yoke of Spain thanks to the Liberator.

And this is neither a legend nor is it fiction, since it has been verified and recorded in writing in the Panamanian history. The Panamanian Foreign Ministry resides in the palace Simon Bolivar of 1826.

PANAMA should invite the illustrious Nobel writer for Literature to the Bicentennial of the Anfictionico Congress in our country, between July 20 and 23, 2026, so that Vargas Llosa includes us in his work “Paraíso en la otra esquina”, as a country liberated by Simón Bolívar and celebrate with us his ninety years and the Bolivarian ideal Panamanian.

Personally we started (1963) in the taste for reading with his book the City and the Dogs, in the Ecuadorian Military Academy of Monsignor Romero and thanks to our illustrious professor Marco Proaño Maya, who instilled in us the vice of reading. Although we prefer to do the thesis on Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfowhich is still valid in our self today.

Nevertheless Mario Vargas Llosa continues to be our favorite writer since 1963 in Quito, Ecuador.

We want to say thanks to the author of this article for this amazing content
