Fakes, literary identity and public culture

journal contribution
posted on 2004-01-01, 00:00 authored by Maria Takolander, David MccooeyDavid Mccooey
The fake presupposes the genuine. The fake author implies the real author, and fake literature presupposes real literature. But literature itself is often about— perhaps fundamentally about—successfully faking it. However, the concern and hostility with which literary public culture has responded to fake authors and what is deemed to be their “fake” literature suggests that the notions of real authors and literature remain centrally important.
