- The English Review: An Introducation, by Nora Tomlinson
Founded by Ford Madox Hueffer in 1908 and edited by him for just fifteen issues, this journal published an interesting mixture of Victorian and Edwardian authors like Thomas Hardy, H. G. Wells, and Joseph Conrad, along with promising young writers like Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, and D. H. Lawrence. Often credited with being more “modernist” than it actually was, it was nevertheless a major literary journal of the transitional period. Ford Madox Hueffer, later “Ford,” had an eye for talent but no head for business, losing money so fast that the editorship was taken away from him after a bit over a year of work. His successor, Austin Harrison, is often reviled as a debaser of a great magazine, but he made it a going concern and published many important authors, including those “discovered” by Hueffer. The MJP’s digital edition covers only Hueffer’s fifteen issues at the present time.
