Synopsis:

Daniel Defoe was one of the most important and best-known writers of the eighteenth century but there is a feeling among scholars that the Defoe 'canon' is a remarkably strange and not very satisfactory construction. Between 1790, when the first bibliography of Defoe appeared, and 1971, when J.R. Moore published the second edition of his Checklist, the canon had swollen from just over a hundred items to 570. A large proportion of these attributions had been made in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, on the basis of features of style, 'favourite phrases' and resemblance to Defoe's known views. This book is a list of all the items in Moore's Checklist (the current authority on the Defoe canon) that at present the authors consider questionable with in each case a note as to who was the first attributer, a brief synopsis and an explanation of the reasons for doubting the ascription.

About the Author: P.N. Furbank is Emeritus Professor, Open University. He has published extensively in literary studies, including Diderot, and was the first winner of the Truman Capote Award for a Work of Literary Criticism.

Book Description Hambledon Press, London, ,first edition, 1994, 1994. Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, xxxiv, 161 pp. From the blurb: "In the centuries after his death the number of works supposed to have been written by Daniel Defoe has expanded from just over 100 titles to a staggering 570. What is equally remarkable is that a large proportion of these were attributed to him on the basis of internal evidence of style and content alone. P.N. Furbank and W.R. Owens believe that this Defoe canon is grotesquely inflated. In Defoe De-Attributions they list 252 items in the standard Checklist of Defoe's writings by J.R. Moore which they regard as suspect, tracing in each case how the work first came to be ascribed to Defoe and offering reasons for distrusting the ascription. There has never been anything in English Literature to compare with the amazing expansion of the Defoe canon (though there are closer parallels in art history), and likewise there has perhaps never been an essay in literary de-attribution on quite this heroic scale. The labours of Furbank and Owens make it possible to see Defoe clearly for the first time. Defoe De-Attributions follows on from their earlier book The Canonisation of Daniel Defoe (1988), in which they explored the chequered history of the Defoe canon and the personalities of those who constructed it, and enunciated some general principles of author-attribution.
