Cinco esquinas es los angeles nueva y esperada novela del Premio Nobel de Literatura Mario Vargas Llosa.

«Él había pensado que, después de todo, un periodista puede ser a veces útil. "Y también peligroso", concluyó. Tuvo el presentimiento de que nada bueno saldría de esta visita. »

«La concept de esta novela comenzó con una imagen de dos señoras amigas que de pronto una noche, de una manera impensada para ambas, viven una situación erótica. Luego se fue convirtiendo en una historia policial, casi un mystery, y el mystery se fue transformando en una especie de mural de l. a. sociedad peruana en los últimos meses o semanas de l. a. dictadura de Fujimori y Montesinos. Me gustó los angeles thought de que l. a. historia se llamase Cinco esquinas como un barrio que, de alguna manera, es emblemático de Lima, de Perú y también de l. a. época en los angeles que está situada l. a. historia.

»Si hay un tema que permea, que impregna toda l. a. historia, es el periodismo, el periodismo amarillo. los angeles dictadura de Fujimori utilizó el periodismo amarillo, el periodismo de escándalo, como un arma política para desprestigiar y aniquilar moralmente a todos sus adversarios. Al mismo tiempo, también está los angeles otra cara, cómo el periodismo, que puede ser algo vil y sucio, puede convertirse de pronto en un instrumento de liberación, de defensa ethical y cívica de una sociedad. Esas dos caras del periodismo son uno de los temas centrales de Cinco esquinas. »

Evidence of the female biological role, with its cycles of menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, becomes a sign of unfitness for competition in the arena of occupational identity, which demands that emotion and evidences of the primacy of the vulnerable human body be suppressed in the interest of predictability and thus complete control of the worker. Therefore the woman who would succeed in public roles must repudiate manifestations of her gender and devalue the private domestic role.

The competitive, rational, expansionist social structure and universe replace the cooperative, moralistic, tightly interrelated community. As the process of rationalization continues, the natural environment becomes for the dominant male leaders an available resource to be utilized, rather than a savage wilderness boundary to be avoided. These leaders play out their individualistic competition in the arena of the marketplace, the successful entrepreneur becoming almost a law unto himself, the followers subject to a growing body of impersonal law devised and administered by unknown persons far beyond their influence.

The matrix replaces the phallus as the source of art, as the female body itself creates and nurtures the community through both body and spirit. " (7). The elder wise woman offers the younger woman an alternate explanatory story for the emergence of female art, one that replaces the "anxiety of [patriarchal] influence" with a direct, irrefutable pattern for a lineage of female creativity. Throughout this discussion, I will use the word "lineage" to indicate the descent of the daughter, and her art, from the wise woman's cre- Page 6 ativity.
