Quoting a well-known work

    I am writing a hub with a well-known piece of writing as its major focus. It takes parts of the work and discusses each part. The work is not very long, and I will be covering the entire piece, quoting, then commenting, quoting then commenting etc.
    Since the original work can be easily found on the web and is in the public domain, will it be considered to be duplicate content?

        Nope-- does it need analysis?

    Perhaps you could make the original work in to pics? Just a thought.

      I thought about that-- might be the way to go.

        Difficult one. If you quote the work and then name the source? I honestly don't know how you could tackle this, Rochelle.

      This is what I have to do when working with books, as using it word for word willmost definitely flag the duplicate copy filter, pictures work fine.

        OK-- I think that is how I will handle it.

    I think it depends how much other content is wrapped around it. It becomes a matter of dilution. Or at least it seems that is the conclusion I came to after reading around a bit. Wouldn't be the first time I drew a conclusion that I wanted to, however, so take that with a grain of salt.

      I think there will be quite a bit wrapped around... but still...
