The Essential Review for Modern Cultural Studies


Since 1902,  the Times Literary Supplement has forged a reputation for fine writing, literary discoveries and insightful debate. The TLS has attracted the contributions of the world’s most influential writers and critics, from T.S. Eliot and Virginia Woolf in the 1920s and 30s to A.N. Wilson and Christopher Hitchens in the 1990s and 2000s. The complete run of the TLS from 1902-2011 is now available online as the Times Literary Supplement Historical Archive.

The TLS Historical Archive is the improved and expanded new edition of the TLS Centenary Archive. This new edition enables users to full-text search more than 150,000 pages of the TLS and discover a wealth of content in more than 300,000 articles.
