Tradition And The Individual Talent20010513

Valentine Cunningham explores the theory and practice of literary influence, from T S Eliot's important early essay `Tradition and the Individual Talent' to Harold Bloom's `The Anxiety of Influence' and the gleeful parodies of postmodernism.

The programme marks the start of Radio 3's Remaking the Past season - a week of music, features and debate investigating the ways in which artists have consciously used models and motifs taken from the art of earlier generations.
