This issue of Critical Survey inaugurates a new chapter in the history
of the journal. Founded in 1962 by Brian Cox and Tony Dyson, the
journal formed a complement to its sibling Critical Quarterly,
publishing creative as well as critical work, and targeted at staff and
students in both secondary and tertiary education. Critical Survey
ceased publication in 1979, and was re-launched in 1989 under the
editorship of Bryan Loughrey, who has now returned as joint Editor
with Graham Holderness (formerly General Editor). A new Poetry
Editor Ben Parker joins our long-serving colleague John Lucas to
manage the Poetry section. We would like to take this opportunity to
record our thanks to the distinguished succession of University of
Hertfordshire Literature staff who served as Editors between 1992
and 2015 – Professor Andrew Murphy, Dr Carol Banks, Professor
Sharon Monteith and Dr Andrew Maunder.
