Le plagiat par anticipation

3.67  ·  Rating details ·  18 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
On ne cesse d'évoquer l'influence des écrivains et des artistes sur leurs successeurs, sans jamais envisager que l’inverse soit possible et que Sophocle ait plagié Freud, Voltaire Conan Doyle, ou Fra Angelico Jackson Pollock.
