Abstract
This article aims to analyze the pursuit of happiness in the characters of three novels published every twenty years or so since 1963. The purpose is to show the real motivations of each character in the pursuit of happiness in each novel. Another objective is to show that Vargas Llosa's characters strive to find happiness despite the more diverse and adverse circumstances in which the author has imbued them. There are two main subjects regarding the pursuit of happiness: sex and writing.
