imageimageA satire (pastiche or lampoon) is not plagiarism; and being positively inspired in one’s own work by another work, if conscious, is a tribute or, if not conscious, derives from some subconscious influence and other unexplained factors stemming from the preternatural phenomenon of literature; and then there are coincidences; and imaginary or borderline comparisons between two works.
My gestalt real-time reviews for nearly six years have been at least partially predicated upon what I see as the above meaningful connections between different works from the realms of literature.
Only in ‘Tristram Shandy’ by Laurence Sterne have I found what I see as deliberate plagiarism!
