...The Romantic movement developed the idea of the absolute originality and artistic inspiration by the individual genius, which performs a "creation from nothingness;" this is the so-called Romantic ideology of literary authorship, which created the notion of plagiarism...This idea is often called "romantic originality." The romantic poets' turned their beliefs on originality into "the institution of originality."
The English poet John Milton, who lived in the 17th century, was part of the origin of the concept. This idea was in contrast with the preceding artistic tradition, in which copying had been seen as a fundamental practice of the creative process; and has been especially challenged since the beginning of the 20th century, with the boom of the modernist and postmodern movements. en.wikipedia.org...-Enlightenment
