The Forger's Shadow: How Forgery Changed the Course of Literature

Author(s): Nick Groom

Literature

Whilst defining the very meaning of forgery, Nick Groom ranges from the economic forgery of the 18th century, where the forgery of a u100 banknote could mean death by hanging, to the formation of literary copyright which was established not in order to protect the nation's authors, but rather as a way of censoring them."
