The New Criterion is a monthly review of culture and the arts edited by Roger Kimball. Founded in 1982 by the art critic Hilton Kramer and the pianist and music critic Samuel Lipman, The New Criterion began as an experiment in critical audacity, a publication devoted to engaging, in Matthew Arnold's famous phrase, with "the best that has been thought and said."

Harry Mount in the Daily Telegraph of London has called The New Criterion "America's leading review of the arts and intellectual life" Julian Symons, in the Times Literary Supplement, writes that "As a critical periodical, The New Criterion is probably more consistently worth reading than any other magazine in English."

Published monthly from September through June, The New Criterion brings together a wide range of young and established critics whose common aim is to bring you the most incisive criticism being written today.

Ratings and Reviews

Wonderful magazine


Great articles make up for mediocre UI. I recommend using an iPad to read issues.

I would consider subscribing...

But I don't really know what the magazine is about, and the preview of the magazine is a joke. Hint to the publishers: it's better to provide an article or two, or even part of an article, than to make your previews unreadable thumbnails of the pages of the magazine. That preview style may work for fashion magazines, but it most certainly doesn't work when the contents of your magazine are 100% text.

Obviously, this magazine is written by intelligent people, who sadly have no understanding of marketing.

Provide a better preview, and if I ever revisit the magazine, I might give a better rating.

Good presentation for a stellar magazine


The New Criterion is the best English language journal of the arts, politics and culture today, with a strong focus on poetry, book reviews and criticism. This app is a good way to read the magazine, which can be hard to find in bookstores.
