    Background: STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN/BOGOTA, COLOMBIA

    The 1982 Nobel literature prize was announced in Stockholm, Sweden on October 21. It was won by the Colombian, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, whose major work 'Cien Ands De Soledad' (One Hundred Years of Solitude) is acknowledged as a masterpiece of Latin-American literature. He is the 16th non-European writer to win the prize since it was first awarded in 1901. The novelist, a vocal left-wing activist went into self-imposed exile in Mexico early last year (1981) after accusing Colombia's military intelligence of attempting to link him with guerrilla groups. On hearing of the award, Senor Garcia Marquez said he viewed the Nobel prize as a recognition of Latin-American letters...not as a personal triumph. The 54 year old author recently expressed his intention to return to Colombia, following the takeover last August of conservative President Belisario Betancur.
