For over a century, the Times Literary Supplement has been the world's leading cultural magazine, with essays and reviews on the most significant books, ideas and art of our times. We are still proud to be publishing the best and brightest writers about the broadest range of books and ideas. And we believe that the audience to read it is larger, and hungrier for information, than at any point in the last 116 years. Every week you’ll find over 40 reviews and essays, from Shakespeare to Schopenhauer, popular theatre to political theory. According to Le Monde, the Times Literary Supplement “has no rivals”. According to Noam Chomsky, it is “provocative, stimulating, irritating, informative”. To anybody interested in the life of the mind, the TLS is indispensable.
“The Exact Editions TLS interface is remarkably easy to use. It allows the user to infinitely adjust the various parameters, resulting in a bespoke reading experience. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” - Dennis Patterson, Professor of Law and Philosophy at Rutgers University.

This week Irina Dumitrescu examines modern attitude to physical exercise, and wonders if it is altogether good for us. In the spirit of more sedentary leisure, the TLS takes a trip to the cinema: Paula Marantz Cohen reassesses the life and work Alfred Hitchcock; Adam Mars-Jones surveys the history of the musical in film. We look ahead to the German elections, and back to Gavin Barwell′s time in Brexit-obsessed Downing Street. Recent fiction, the abiding allure of Sappho, and the draw of spiritual retreats are among the other delights in this week′s issue.
