plagiarism

Neoist poetics are characterised by the practice of plagiarism and the use of collective pseudonyms.

The great advantage of plagiarism as a literary method is that it removes the need for talent, or even much application. All you really have to do is select what to plagiarise. Enthusiastic beginners might like to start by plagiarising these lines. A hardcore nihilist might choose to plagiarise it verbatim; while those individuals who labour under the delusion that they are of a more artistic bent, will probably want to change a word here and there - or even place the paragraphs in a different order! In short, plagiarism saves time and effort, improves results and shows considerable initiative on the part of the individual plagiarist.
