The Critic

The Critic was a New York-based magazine of literary criticism published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Publication History

The Critic began in 1881. In 1884 the magazine merged with Good Literature to become The Critic and Good Literature, and started a new series. The title reverted to The Critic that year, and numbering based on the old series was reintroduced in the 1890s (originally alongside new series numbering, but eventually replacing it). In 1906, the magazine was absorbed into a new incarnation of Putnam's Monthly, which was titled Putnam's Monthly and The Critic for its initial issues.
