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 August/September 2020 issue features Leaf Arbuthnot on Loneliness, Josh McLoughlin on Crisis, Jeffrey Meyers on Ivan Moffat, and Miranda Emmerson on My London; alongside Rebecca Farmer on Louis MacNeice, Joanna Hershon on Solar Eclipses, and Tony Roberts on Erich Remarque.
It also includes short fiction by Jelle Cauwenberghs, Clare Fisher, Venetia Welby, Jess Arndt and Daniel Fraser.
Poetry by Roger Robinson, Ella Frears, Caleb Femi, Mona Arshi, Stephanie Norgate, Holly Howitt, Angela Kirby, Richard Aronowitz, Kieron Winn and Yogesh Patel. As well as reviews by Theophilus Kwek, Sam Buchan-Watts, Lydia Wilson, Katie da Cunha Lewin and Ellen Jones.
