Description

The archive of The Review was acquired for the Brotherton Collection in 1996.

The Review was one of the most successful literary ‘little magazines’ and enjoyed a ten year period of publication from 1962 to 1972. Its focus was contemporary English and American poetry.

The archive comprises of correspondence largely between the editor, Ian Hamilton, and poets submitting work for publication, and articles and poems submitted for The Review. This forms the bulk of the collection but there are also miscellaneous papers relating to finance and fund-raising to keep the magazine going, galley proofs and advertising copy.

The archive has largely been retained in the order in which it was acquired but with some rearrangements and has been organised in the following way:

Box 1 Correspondence (A - Z by author)
Correspondence relating to poetry readings
Correspondence relating to fund-raising

Box 2 Articles (A - Z by author)
Unpublished conversations
Symposium articles

Box 3 Poetry
Powers by Michael Fried

Box 4 The Review issues no.1 - no.30

Box 5 Advertising copy
Galleyproofs
Finance and accounts
