Metropolitan Magazine

The Metropolitan Magazine  was begun in 1831 by Thomas Campbell and Cyrus Redding, who brought with them many of the contributors to the  New Monthly Magazine  of the 1820s. The   Metropolitan Magazine  (so titled from 1833) was later edited by Frederick Marryat and appeared monthly until folding in 1850. Many of its contributors during its first ten years also wrote for  Blackwood's, Tait's,  and  Fraser's . The main section of the  Metropolitan,  "Original Papers," featured scholarly articles, political and social commentaries, poetry, fiction, and sometimes extended literary reviews, followed by a smaller section (not indexed here) with short notices and almanac listings. The  Metropolitan  was not included in the original  Wellesley Index,  but its importance as an outlet for many interesting writers of the 1830s and 1840s -- including a number that have never appeared in any other Wellesley or Curran Index listing -- makes it an obvious candidate for inclusion in the newly expanded Curran. The Curran Index includes a full table of contents for prose and verse published in the "Original Papers" section of the magazine.
