Law and Literature: This post brought to you by the letter "D"

Most people think of Tennyson or those old English dudes who wrote Beowulf when they think of the luscious literary technique of alliteration. I, on the other hand, think Calamari and Perillo, who use the device brilliantly in their fifth edition of "On Contracts." Behold:

If the delegant delegates a delegable duty to a delegate and the delegate performs, the duty of the delegant will be discharged.

Shakespeare himself could not conjure up such commanding contract codifications. Another fine example:

When the delegating party delegates a duty, the delegant's liability continues unless there is a discharge by the other party in consideration of the delegate's assumption of the delegant's duty.

KP Dubbs would be so proud...
