The Anxiety of Influence


    I thought this was kind of interesting. Its a book by Harold Bloom and the message is that while current-day poets accumulate a lot of their ideas from the fascination of their precursors, their creative process is hindered by essentially not wanting to be a copy cat.


There's the wikipedia if you're interested. If you scroll down to where he breaks the book up into six different ratios it's pretty cool stuff.
