Definition of attribution:
What Voltaire really did urge was that the solace derived from the attribution of humanity and justice to the Supreme Being, and from the metaphysical account of evil, rests on too narrow a base either to cover the facts, or to be a true solace to any man who thinks and observes.- "Rousseau Volumes I. and II.", John Morley.
- "Landmarks in the History of Early Christianity", Kirsopp Lake.
Any attempt to describe the plays in terms of our emotions as readers is likely to result in the attribution of those emotions to the author, an interesting process of analogy and one hardly to be disproved.- "Tragedy", Ashley H. Thorndike.
