a literary periodical, first a monthly, then a quarterly, edited by E. Rickword and Douglas Garman. It published fiction by D. H. Lawrence, Pirandello, A. E. Coppard, Gerhardie, and others; in its critical articles it condemned the ‘non‐combatant’ and uncommitted critical attitudes of Gosse and the grossness of Arnold Bennett, found the products of Bloomsbury to be on the whole frivolous and sentimental, and praised the critical approach of I. A. Richards. Towards Standards of Criticism: Selections from the Calendar of Modern Letters was published in 1933 with an introduction by Leavis and Scrutiny upheld many of its attitudes.
