The Quarterly Review was a commercially successful literary and political review. It owed its success to the complex interactions between several competing elements: the material conditions of periodical publishing at the turn of the nineteenth century, the entrepreneurial ambitions of John Murray (the journal's publisher) as well as the editors and contributors, and the propagandist goals of its political backers in government. The Quarterly Review played a leading role in dignifying writing for the market and made journalism a viable way to earn a living.
