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 February/March 2020 issue includes Heathcote Ruthven & Miranda Gold on homelessness and poetry, Konrad Muller on George Augustus Robinson, and Tony Roberts on Delmore Schwartz. Alongside this, Will Stone discusses the secret of Ashley Coombe, Emily Priest explores isolation in Kamakura, and Simon Tait writes on 'My London'.
This issue also features an extensive array of short fiction by Venetia Welby, Tom Heaton, Anita Harris and Elizabeth Baines.
