Description

In the summer of 1913, Somerville and Ross attempted to bring to court a case of plagiarism against Owen Roe and Honor Urse, authors of a collection of Irish short stories entitled By the Brown Big (1913). Somerville and Ross accused Roe and Urse of lifting passages, characters, and ideas from their Some Experiences of an Irish R.M. (1899). The dispute was eventually settled out of court by halting sales of By the Brown Bog and altering its content in line with Somerville and Ross’s objections.
