The Hazlitt Review

ISSN 1757-8299

The Hazlitt Society publishes The Hazlitt Review, an annual peer-reviewed journal, the first internationally to be devoted to Hazlitt studies.  The Review aims to promote and maintain Hazlitt’s standing, both in the academy and to a wider readership, by providing a forum for new writing on Hazlitt and his contemporaries by scholars and lay readers alike. Contents of our earlier issues can be accessed free on this page. 

LATEST ISSUE: Volume 6 (September 2013)

Terry Eagleton, 'Ulster Altruism: Frances Hutcheson and William Hazlitt'

We invite essays of 4,000 to 9,000 words in length on any aspect of William Hazlitt’s work and life; articles relating Hazlitt to wider Romantic circles, topics, or discourses are also expressly welcome, as are reviews of books pertaining to such matters.

Submissions will be considered year-round, but must be received by 1st March to be considered for publication in the same year’s Review. We regret that we cannot publish material already published or submitted elsewhere.  Contributors who require their articles to be open access (under the RCUK policy effective from the 1st April 2013) should indicate this, and they will be made freely available on this website on publication.
