The Accidental Plagiarist.

Erik Campbell’s “The Accidental Plagiarist,” from the Spring VQR, is getting a great deal of attention from the internets. Campbell’s thesis is basically that you shouldn’t even try to be original because, really, it’s not possible. Accidental plagiarism is inevitable. Anybody who writes publicly, on blogs or otherwise, will appreciate it.
