Update 04/2013: Since this post still gets a steady stream of hits via Google, I should note that Clines’ lovely little essay no longer appears to be available in full online, but if you have access to a decent theological library it appears as the final essay in his collection of essays On the Way to Postmodern (Volume 2; JSOTSupp 293; Sheffield Academic Press, 1998), 830-39. At the moment, portions of the essay appear to be available through GoogleBooks.
I suppose this will reveal my thoroughly nerdy sense of humor, but anyone who has spent much time reading redaction critics ought to appreciate this parody by David J.A. Clines (HT James McGrath):
There is little need, at the present stage of scholarship, to attempt a justification of the principle that the dogma of unitary authorship for works of literature must be totally abandoned. In all confidence we may say that a priori we may expect the Pooh corpus (viz. Winnie-the-Pooh, hereafter abbreviated W, containing traditions of higher antiquity than the Deutero-Pooh book, The House at Pooh Corner, hereafter abbreviated H) to be of composite origin; even if there were such a person as A.A. Milne, traditionally the ‘author’, we may be sure that he did not write the Pooh books. His name does not occur once within the narratives themselves, and we can hardly be expected to take a title-page, manifestly a later addition, seriously.
I’m determined to include this on a syllabus someday.
