Word Theft by Ruth Graham
"T.S. Eliot, who relied on other sources for much of 'The Waste Land' (plagiarism or allusion?), famously wrote, 'Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.' Less often quoted is the next line, 'Bad poets deface what they take.' This is what seems to gall many victims of plagiarists: to see their poems reprinted in weaker versions than the original."
