The London Review of Books was founded in 1979, during the year-long lock-out at the Times. For the first six months, the LRB appeared as an insert in the New York Review of Books. In May 1980, the London Review of Books jumped out of the parental pouch becoming a fully independent literary paper and has been published twice a month ever since. It has been dedicated to carrying on the tradition of the English essay. In this respect, it is not very different from one of the great 19th-century periodicals.
