Critical Quarterly News

Probably the most influential English literary-critical journal in the academic field over the post war decades.
John Holloway, New Pelican Guide to English Literature.

'This is the only journal to remain faithful to the original spirit of cultural studies. It mixes `high' and `low' culture, criticism and creative writing without losing sight of political and social questions.'
Rosalind Coward, Professor of Journalism

'Critical Quarterly has become an institution without the slightest sign of ossification.'
Brian Morton, Literary Editor of The Times Higher Education Supplement
