Jared Hartzman Essay# 1, Draft 1 English 1558.02 Cecily Swanson Page#1 9/03/08 Collaboration in a Phrase A popular view on collaborative writing is that when more than one person writes a book, it is both impossible to tell who is writing and the thoughts that are going through the minds of the authors. In a sense Marek and Laird express very similar opinions on collaborative literature. Both feel that when the piece has been written by more than one person it often loses meaning and makes it more difficult to understand the circumstances in which it was written. Works of literature should never be taken out of context. Events that happen in the writer’s life almost always affect their writing. When more than one person is writing a story, it’s hard to understand the background information that led to what was written. Marek, in reference to editorial work, states that when editors look over works of literature and make alterations it becomes hard to tell what exactly the author him/herself wrote or meant.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
