Plagiarism and Literary Property in the Romantic Period

Front Cover
University of Pennsylvania Press, 2007 - 236 pages

Were the Romantic poets plagiarists, and did plagiarism have the same meaning two hundred years ago as it has today? Tilar J. Mazzeo offers a major reassessment of the role of borrowing, textual appropriation, and narrative mastery in British Romantic literature and provides a new picture of the period and its central aesthetic contests.
