"Secondly, the 'author-function' is not universal or constant in all discourse... scientific text were accepted on their own merits and positioned within an anonymous and coherent conceptual system of established truths and methods of verification... At the same time, however, 'literary' discourse was acceptable only if it carried an authors name; every text of poetry or fiction was obliged to state its author and the date, place, and circumstance of its writing."
-"What is an Author?" Michel Foucault, p.125
