Riassunto: A comprehensive and entertaining history of the Times Literary Supplement, this text is not only a "biography" of an institution, but it is a reflection of the changes in British literature and culture throughout the 20th century. From its first tenuous year in 1902 to its modern-day incarnation, the Times Literary Supplement has been home to an astonishing assemblage of outstanding writers. This work also reveals for the first time the identities of the journal's anonymous reviewers since 1902—a tradition which lasted until 1974. Derwent May, formerly of the TLS himself, also examines the ethos and aims of the paper's editors, management, and staff; and the controversies, quarrels, and relations between writers and critics.
Dall'editore: For one hundred years, from its tenuous beginnings in 1902, THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT, has been home to an astonishing assemblage of outstanding writers, each working against the backdrop of their times. During the First World War, with the paper reflecting on the rightness of the conflict, regular contributors included Virginia Woolf (then Miss A.V. Stephen) and the young T.S. Eliot. By the Second World War, the paper was articulating views on Nazi Germany, with commentators like George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh. Today, the TLS continues to hold up a mirror to literature, politics, and society. Derwent May?columnist for THE TIMES?looks at the controversies, the jests, the quarrels, the court cases. A fascinating, skillfully illuminated chronicle of a century of distinguished journalism.
