So, what are we to make of this story? Of course, publishers and literary agents are mostly crap, know little about books and less about literature. But isn't it also true that, if a Jane Austen novel were to be published as a new novel today, it would not be the same work? See the Borges story, Pierre Menard, Author Of Don Quixote. (And try and keep you eyes off the 'bum pincher' pic next to the 'aspiring author').
