"Critical Times is a dramatic and entertaining history of one of the great literary journals of the world, the Times Literary Supplement. Derwent May unfolds a hundred years of controversy and wit, from the paper's first appearance in the great epoch of Edwardian journalism in 1902, to its role as the voice of contemporary thought." "Revealed here are the identities of the hundreds of anonymous figures who reviewed for the paper, from T. S. Eliot and Aldous Huxley to George Orwell and Anthony Powell. We see the tentative first writings of Miss V. A. Stephen evolve into the magisterial essays of Virginia Woolf; venomous spats between historians; the emergence of new novelists such as Salman Rushdie and Martin Amis, the mocking reviews with which the first poems of Ezra Pound were greeted, and the review of Evelyn Waugh's first book in which he was described throughout as 'she'."--BOOK JACKET
