Abstract:This article attempts to widen the literary critical perspective on plagiarism by focussing on an early South African example of plagiarism in Afrikaans literature associated with the name of D.P.M. Botes and the little magazine 'Wurm'. Botes's supposed plagiarism is placed in the framework of the European avant-garde by comparing it with Marcel Duchamp's 'Fountain' of 1917. This comparison forms the basis on which other instances of plagiarism in Afrikaans are commented on, as well as on which a 'literary' definition of plagiarism is advanced.
