Wrongly Attributed Works - to be reconsidered : Donald S. Taylor, author of the definitive The Complete Works of Thomas Chatterton, clearly marks the following Wrongly Attributed Works as not by Chatterton, however, I must offer them for reconsideration, simply as part of TCMP process. 

Each poem or piece of work is on a light green or white background. This is simply to indicate individual items.  The layout approximates to chronological order. The blue 'View' link will take you to the Control Page for the individual work, which may contain only basic information while I strive to populate them.

The list is fully Searchable via your browser search function, or simply press ctrl+F.
