The website of the UK's most distinguished literary journal acts both as a taster for the print edition, and a gateway to the Times Literary Supplement
's magnificent archive
Since it first appeared in 1902, the TLS
has become a central feature in the literary landscape of the United Kingdom. Despite its title, the literary review has been a separate publication for almost a hundred years. Learned, stimulating, wise and witty, the TLS
is old-fashioned only in the sense that it is passionately engaged with literature. Sadly, that is all too rare these days. In its more than hundred years of publishing it has featured writing from some of the finest of contemporary writers, including Woolf, Joyce, Kundera, Larkin, Pamuk and Heaney.
Although the web edition does not replicate the experience of reading the print edition, there is plenty of content available, including reviews, features and the letters page, You can subscibe for a complete e-paper version of the TLS
. The site is currently undergoing a revamp and whether any of the new look site will exist outside Rupert Murdoch's paywall remains to be seen.
