abstract

In the novel La fiesta del chivo the Peruan writer Mario Vargas Llosa shapes the dictator as a symbolic figure of any dictatorship through the corporal elements which caracterise his personality together with his physical body. Dictator’s power vacillates because of body’s vulnerability at his age of seventy. Health problems related to sexuality debilitate tirannicy as an institutional symbol of power. This paper studies the way the corporality is related with textuality in the construction of a historic novel as a fiction.
