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 some of our earlier issues can be accessed free on the Back Issues page. 

LATEST ISSUE: Volume 11 (September 2018)

Hazlitt and his Circle


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.

Contributions should follow the MHRA style and should be sent by email to James Whitehead or Philipp Hunnekuhl. 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.


Subscriptions, including annual membership of the Hazlitt Society, are £10 (individual) or £15 (corporate or institution) per annum. Overseas subscriptions are $24/£15 (individual) or $35/£25 (corporate).

The Review is distributed by the Society, at the annual lecture or by post. Please contact the Society at hazlittsociety@gmail.com in order to set up a new subscription, including in your message a full postal address for the receipt of your copy. Subscription payments for individual members are preferred by annual standing order (account details on request) or by PayPal.
