This collection of critical writing on Daniel Defoe comprises part of a research
project undertaken in 2001 and 2002 during a period of intercalated leave from the
early stages of my doctoral thesis. The primary purpose of the project was to
produce a comprehensive, and generously-proportioned, portrait of the changing
critical reputation of Defoe between 1700 and 1900. While the material collected
has undergone a rigorous editorial process that renders it -- necessarily -- selective, one of my fundamental objectives throughout has been to give the broadest possible sense of the developing critical response to Defoe’s extraordinarily diverse canon of writing.
