February/ March 2010
The UK's oldest cultural journal featuring the best original poetry, short fiction, cultural reviews and literary essays since 1732.
The London Magazine has been responsible for publishing some of the most significant literature in British history. From Wordsworth, Shelley and Keats to T. S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Dylan Thomas and Doris Lessing, today it remains at the forefront with the best contemporary writing. Its writers on art have included John Richardson, Alan Bowness, Edward Lucie-Smith and Mel Gooding and it has featured original work by Graham Sutherland, Prunella Clough, Maggie Hambling and Frank Auerbach.
Highlights of this issue of The London Magazine include poetry from Raymond Antrobus and Fiona Sampson, fiction from Joanna Walsh and Miranda Gold, as well as essays on the life of legacy of John Ruskin and the muses of 20th century French painter Pierre Bonnard (recently featured at Tate Modern). Elsewhere we have new work from eleven other brilliant and diverse poets, as well as essays on history, psychogeography, literary history, and our usual extensive journalism covering the latest and greatest in contemporary literature.
