Defoe’s 'horse-rhetorick': human animals and gender

Gregg, S.H (2014) 'Defoe’s 'horse-rhetorick': human animals and gender.' In: Ellison, K, Kincade, K and Nelson, H, eds. Topographies of the imagination: new approaches to Daniel Defoe. AMS Press, New York. ISBN 9780404648695

Official URL:


Topographies of the Imagination traces not only the diverse contours of Defoe’s creative intellect but also the ways in which general readers, literary critics, and even editors have interpreted and fashioned multiple Defoes across time and space. To study and write on the works of Defoe is to recognize at once his significance and elusiveness, the importance of his body of works and the evolving nature of his canon. In this collection, Defoe inspires scholars to think meta-biographically and meta-textually even as they appreciate Defoe’s life and work on their own terms, a task that necessitates inhabiting a complex and sometimes paradoxical critical space, one that resists simple interpretive binaries.
