Christopher Ricks is among the best known living critics. His third collection of essays, several newly written for this book, is strongly focused on the theme of how writers - especially but not exclusively poets - make use of other writers' work: from the subtle courtesies of different kinds of allusion to the extreme discourtesy of plagiarism. Scintillating studies from one of the absolute masters of literary-critical writing.
The copying and pasting of the book is limited to 5 pages.
