What is literary pirate?

Famous quotes containing the words pirate and/or literary:

    The pirate gaped at Belinda’s dragon,
    And gulped some grog from his pocket flagon,
    He fired two bullets, but they didn’t hit,
    And Custard gobbled him, every bit.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    When appearance and reality coincide, philosophy and literary criticism find themselves with nothing to say.
