Mario Vargas Llosa is right: Arguedas (1911-1969) sets a fundamental milestone in the development of Peruvian literature. In fact, his work opens the doors to modernity, masterfully concluding the experiences of the indigenista movement and inaugurating a later stage, characterized by a wide thematic diversity and by a permanent inquiry into the linguistic plane. To the strictly literary task it is possible to add his vast work as an anthropologist and folklorist.
