The London Magazine is England’s oldest literary periodical, with a history stretching back to 1732. The pages of the Magazine have played host to a wide range of canonical writers, from Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Hazlitt and John Keats in the 18th-century, to T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden and Evelyn Waugh in the early 20th-century. Today – reinvigorated for a new century – the Magazine’s essence remains unchanged: it is a home for the best writing and an indispensable feature on the British literary landscape.

Our April/May 2014 issue features Stoddard Martin on Beryl Bainbridge, Elisabeth Russell Taylor on Leopardi and his ancestral city Recanati, Jeffrey Meyers on the struggle and triumph of publishing Iris Murdoch, John Tusa on My London, Edward Lucie-Smith argues that there is trouble in the Avant-Garde, H.R.H Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad on governing a troubled region, and finally, Peter Abbs gives us an overview on the Poetics of Romanticism.

New short stories by Alison Joseph and the winner of The London Magazine’s 2013 Short Story Competition, Harriet Kline.

This issue features a range of poets including Peggy Aleander, Maggie Butt, Will Eaves, Desmond Graham, Michael O’Neill, Jeff Phelps, Peter Robinson, Bernard Saint and George Tardios. Reviewers include David Cooke, Grey Gowrie, Mark Hutchings, Terry Kelly, and Paul Williamson.
