Bought it for a Uni module. An evocative mix and easy to read. The sort of book you can pick up and dip into.

A very useful collection of essays. Contains some of the highlights from the canon of critical theory and a number of less well known essays. Interesting and insightful cross section of opinions on authorship. I found it beneficial for my research but would also recommend this to anyone with an interest in theories of authorship in art, literature, music or film.

Format: Paperback
The topic area of Authorship is so incredibly vast that most people do not know where to start but Burke manages to condense relevant snippets of thinking into this anthology with relative ease. It is a useful introduction to Barthesian theory and a comprehensive reference tool when studying this area.

This book was recommended to us as a key book on a uni course. However, I have found it to be one of the most boring and pointless books I have ever been given to study. You'd get more sense from the daily mail.
