607 issues

For over a century, the Times Literary Supplement has been the world's leading cultural magazine, with essays and reviews on the most significant books, ideas and art of our times. We are still proud to be publishing the best and brightest writers about the broadest range of books and ideas. And we believe that the audience to read it is larger, and hungrier for information, than at any point in the last 116 years. Every week you’ll find over 40 reviews and essays, from Shakespeare to Schopenhauer, popular theatre to political theory. According to Le Monde, the Times Literary Supplement “has no rivals”. According to Noam Chomsky, it is “provocative, stimulating, irritating, informative”. To anybody interested in the life of the mind, the TLS is indispensable.

Latest issue

The lead review in this week′s TLS concerns depression, and a number of books claiming to have found an answer to this widespread illness: our reviewer is sceptical. In the rest of the paper, we revisit the great American essays; ask "what is history?"; enjoy Monica Ali′s latest novel; cast a retrospective eye over the films of Derek Jarman and Stephen Dwoskin; and revisit the 1953-4 English cricket tour of the West Indies. Other subjects include interfaith dialogue, Chinese as a written language, the works of Byron, and the memoirs of a female mountaineer.
