English is an internationally known journal of literary criticism, published on behalf of The English Association. Each issue contains essays on major works of English literature or on topics of general literary interest, aimed at readers within universities and colleges and presented in a lively and engaging style. There is a substantial review section, in which reviewers have space to situate a book within the context of recent developments in its field, and present a detailed argument. The review section is supplemented by an Editorial Commentary which allows attention to be drawn to some of the many books received which cannot be fully reviewed, especially new scholarly editions of the work of major writers. An Editorial Commentary is used to comment on more general issues relevant to the study of literature and to the teaching of English. English is unusual among academic journals in publishing original poetry. This policy embodies the view that the critical and creative functions, often so widely separated in the teaching of English, can co-exist and cross-fertilise each other.
