Questions- “Intertext” & “The Concept of Authorship”

21 04 2009

1. The first article mentions that the electronic medium threatens to reverse the attitudes fostered by the press by breaking down the barrier between author and reader.  How serious do you think this threat is?

2.  The article says to understand how “constructed” our concept of authorship is, we need to look at the Middle Ages, did our view necessarily start then or has it been and ongoing development?

3.  When it comes to citations and authorship, is more necessarily better?  In your opinion, why or why not?
