A rejoinder to an attack on the work on the Defoe canon of P.N. Furbank and W.R. Owens, by Maximillian E. Novak ('Whither the Defoe Canon?', in Eighteenth-Century Fiction, October 1986). Argues that Novak's central principle of attribution -- that 'what reads like Defoe stylistically and contains some of Defoe's often quite unusual ideas is probably by Defoe' -- is a hopeless basis for the construction of an authorial canon.
