Guatemalan diplomat and writer Miguel Angel Asturias (1899-1974) began this award-winning work while still a law student. It is a story of ruthless dictator and his schemes to dispose of a political adversary in an unnamed Latin American country usually identified as Guatemala. The book has been acclaimed for portraying both a totalitarian government and its damaging psychological effects. Drawing from his experiences as a journalist writing under repressive conditions, Asturias employs such literary devices as satire to convey the governments transgressions and surrealistic dream sequences to demonstrate the police states impact on the individual psyche. Asturiass stance against all forms of injustice in Guatemala caused critics to view the author as a compassionate spokesperson for the oppressed. My work, Asturias promised when he accepted the Nobel Prize, will continue to reflect the voice of the people, gathering their myths and popular beliefs and at the same time seeking to give birth to a universal consciousness of Latin American problems.
