Summary Authenticity is a formidable word, a dangerous word, a word whereby fortunes, careers and reputations can be won or lost. But what has authenticity to do with art? The essays in this book focus on their turbulent relationship ranging across the fields of literature and the visual arts and philosophy, and covering topics as diverse as fictional biography, portraiture, copies and forgeries, war photography, letters as testimony and texts in translation. The reader encounters Erasmus, Rousseau, Heidegger, Beckett, Borges, and Houellebecq; engages with subjects as varied as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, da Vinci's La Belle Ferronnière, and Million Dollar Baby
