The New Criterion

The New Criterion is a New York–based monthly literary magazine and journal of artistic and cultural criticism, edited by Roger Kimball and James Panero. It has sections for criticism of poetry, art, the media, books, it was founded in 1982 by Hilton Kramer, former art critic for The New York Times, Samuel Lipman, a pianist and music critic. The name is a reference to The Criterion, a British literary magazine edited by T. S. Eliot from 1922 to 1939; the magazine describes itself as a "monthly review of the arts and intellectual life... in the forefront both of championing what is best and most humanely vital in our cultural inheritance and in exposing what is mendacious and spurious." It evinces an artistic classicism and political conservatism that are rare among other publications of its type. It publishes "special pamphlets", or compilations of published material organized into themes; some past examples have been Corrupt Humanitarianism. S. and Great Britain. Since 1999, The New Criterion has been running the New Criterion Poetry Prize, a poetry contest with a cash prize.

In 2004, The New Criterion contributors began publishing a blog, known as Dispatch. The New Criterion was founded in 1982 by The New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer, he cited his reasons for leaving the paper to start The New Criterion as "the disgusting and deleterious doctrines with which the most popular of our Reviews disgraces its pages", as well as "the dishonesties and hypocrisies and disfiguring ideologies that nowadays afflict the criticism of the arts, are rooted in both our commercial and our academic culture". "It is therefore all the more urgent", he went on to say, "that a dissenting critical voice be heard, it is for the purpose of providing such a voice that The New Criterion has been created."Kramer's decision to leave The New York Times, where he had been the newspaper's chief art critic, to start a magazine devoted to ideas and the arts "surprised a lot of people and was a statement in itself", according to Erich Eichmann. Contributors to the journal include Mark Steyn, as well as articles by Roger Scruton, David Pryce-Jones, Theodore Dalrymple, Jay Nordlinger.

In its first issue, dated September 1982, the magazine set out "to speak plainly and vigorously about the problems that beset the life of the artists and the life of the mind in our society" while resisting "a more general cultural drift" that had in many cases, "condemned true seriousness to a fugitive existence". According to the conservative publication The New York Sun, for a quarter of a century The New Criterion "has helped its readers distinguish achievement from failure in painting, dance, literature and other arts; the magazine, whose circulation is 6,500, has taken a leading role in the culture wars, publishing articles whose titles are an intellectual call to arms." Since the magazine's founding, many writers, academics and politicians - drawn from the conservative end of the political spectrum - have written for it. Contributors include: Hilton Kramer Fellowship Since its inauguration in 2013, The New Criterion’s reader-funded Hilton Kramer Fellowship has been awarded to promising writers with an interest in developing careers as critics.
