Times Literary Supplement, Literary Review, Quarto

john literary leading appeared

a monthly journal edited by Richard Boston and John Ryle which appeared between 1979, when it was formed during the temporary closure of the Times Literary Supplement, and 1982, when it was absorbed by the Literary Review. During its comparatively brief career Quarto attracted contributions from many of the leading literary and intellectual figures of the period, its scope extending to coverage of music, psychoanalysis, socio-political tendencies, and the theatre. Michael Tippett, Craig Raine, Tom Paulin, James Fenton, George Steiner, and Seamus Heaney were among the authors of articles and reviews; poems by numerous emerging writers who later established substantial reputations appeared under Peter Porter's poetry editorship, as did verse from leading poets who included Ted Hughes, John Updike, Douglas Dunn, and John Betjeman. Among the subjects of the interviews which were regularly featured were Michael Frayn, Geoffrey Hill, John Ashbery, William Golding, and Thom Gunn.
