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 October/November 2019 issue features Charles Jennings on Gothic London, Xenobe Purvis on the cultural and mythical role of glacial ice, as well as Erik Martiny on Marcel Proust and the Prix Goncourt. Tony Roberts invites us to discover the poetry of F.T. Prince and Justin Doherty the Flower Men tribe of Saudi Arabia. Paul Gittins reconsiders poet W.H. Davies’s fall from favour, meanwhile Anton Chekhov and D.H. Lawrence visit Sri Lanka in Jeffrey Meyers’ essay and Ethan Darden on Notre-Dame.

Short fiction by Jane Fraser and Emmanuelle Pagano. Poetry by Patricia McCarthy, Sam Buchan-Watts, Brit Parks, Jaya Savige, Matthew Francis, Steven O’Brien, Maggie Butt, Martina Evans, Dominic Leonard, Chris McCabe, Frieda Hughes and John Kinsella. Reviewers include Imogen Woodberry, Stuart Walton, Tom Sutcliffe, Theophilus Kwek, Katie Da Cunha Lewin and Will Forrester.
