Founding of the Quarterly Review

A Chronology for 1808

The first issue of the Quarterly Review appeared in March 1809.

The previous year, a number of developments, most related to the building conservative opposition to the liberal Edinburgh Review, precipitated the founding of the journal.

4 January Robert Southey to James Grahame states, "It will be well for Jeffrey if his abuse of Wordsworth does not draw down vengeance upon his head." (Curry, New Letters of Robert Southey, 469)

Heinowitz, "The Allure of the Same: Robert Southey's Welsh Indians and the Rhetoric of Good Colonialism"

This essay examines the rhetoric of sameness (as opposed to the more familiar rhetoric of otherness) that characterized British imperial interest in Spanish American during the Romantic era. To do this, it analyzes how Robert Southey's 1805 poem Madoc, a Welsh-Mexican epic set in the twelfth century, builds on the Burkean plea for colonial benevolence in India in order to mount its own vindication of 'good' imperialism in Spanish America. Southey's struggle to exalt traditional colonialism as the great unifier of conqueror and conquered was dogged, however, by internal contradictions as well as by Britain's increasingly aggressive presence in Spanish America. This essay appears in _Sullen Fires Across the Atlantic: Essays in Transatlantic Romanticism_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (http://www.rc.umd.edu/), University of Maryland.
