Product Description
Theodore Sturgeon called THE BUSINESS OF BEING A WRITER "the second best reference book a writer can have,after the dictionary." Harlan Ellison said, "It may not make you a better writer, but it will keep you from being a poorer one." Isaac Asimov said, "Read [this book]. It will tell you everything clearly and interrestingly."

Published in 1982, before the widespread use of personal computers, the Internet, and electronic publishing, the book concentrated on writing and selling to the print media--books and magazines. Updated excerpts are now being reprinted on various topics--still focused on those primary areas, but still applicable to the current-day writer.

This excerpt discusses fair use and permissions for getting quotes, skirting the dangers of obscenity, libel and invasion of privacy, writers' wills and estates, and public lending rights. ... Read more

Product Description
The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
This collection reveals the history of English common law and Empire law in a vastly changing world of British expansion. Dominating the legal field is the Commentaries of the Law of England by Sir William Blackstone, which first appeared in 1765. Reference works such as almanacs and catalogues continue to educate us by revealing the day-to-day workings of society.

Editorial Review

Product Description

From the origins of modern copyright in early eighteenth-century culture to the efforts to represent nature and death in postmodern fiction, this book explores a series of problems regarding the containment of representation. Stewart focuses on specific cases of "crimes of writing"—the forgeries of George Psalmanazar; the production of "fakelore"; the "ballad scandals" of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; the imposture of Thomas Chatterton; and contemporary legislation regarding graffiti and pornography. She emphasizes the issues that arise once language is seen as a matter of property, and authorship is viewed as a matter of originality. Finally, Stewart demonstrates that crimes of writing are delineated by the law because they specifically undermine the status of the law itself: the crimes illuminate the irreducible fact that law is written and therefore subject to temporality and interpretation. This valuable and pioneering work, originally published in 1991 (Oxford University Press), will be of interest to literary and legal theorists, folklorists, anthropologists, andscholars of eighteenth-century and postmodern culture.

5-0 out of 5 stars yes, it's smart
Ok, so the prose is dense, and she's read more books than you, and sometimes there's a bit of untranslated French (a pet peeve, I'll admit). Still, this is brilliant stuff. The chapter on graffiti is a classic-- the best theoretical treatement of graffiti available, and worth the price of the book by itself.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lots of promise, impenetrable prose
I was very excited about this book. Unfortunately it reads as though itwere written by a graduate student has gone mad on speed. The simplestideas are obfuscated by hideous prose. Here's an example: "In order tomaintain imposture as a notion, we must also maintain a ficiton of seamlesssubjectivity." Otherwise stated: In order to act you have to pretendconvincingly. Try it yourself, each page is packed with enough tangledsyntax, overwrought diction, and unnecessary allusions to give a decenteditor nightmares. Who is in charge of those grants, anyway? This issmart??!! ... Read more
