"One of the surest tests [of the superiority or inferiority of a poet] is the way in which a poet borrows. Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different than that from which it is torn; the bad poet throws it into something which has no cohesion."


Let's all be good thieves together.

Associated Content article is live

Sorry to love you and leave you with a short post but it's 1 a.m. and I'd like to get some sleep. My first AC article is now up and as always feedback is welcome. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1234004/sex_and_the_story.html?cat=9

I can see a few typos I missed earlier and a couple of rough transitions, but it gives me something to improve on and hopefully future articles will read a lot smoother than this one.

Edit: second article is up http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1247728/just_what_is_a_poppy_z_brite_vampire.html?cat=38
