The New Review (1974-1979)

'The New Review was intended to preserve the rigour and liveliness of The Review but to extend its range into 'the arts' - although literature would be its chief concern. There were few outlets then (there are maybe even fewer now) for the short story, for the extended critical essay, or for the sort of 'new journalism' that was making its mark in the United States. On the one hand, there were the academic journals; on the other, the Sunday supplements and culture pages, with their obligation to be brief. It seemed to us that there was fertile, vacant ground between the two: it was for this we aimed'. -- From the Preface to The New Review Anthology, edited by Ian Hamilton (Heinemann, 1985)
