The Nation and Athenaeum
The Nation and Athenaeum or simply The Nation was a United Kingdom political weekly newspaper with a Liberal / Labour viewpoint. It was formed in 1921 from the merger of the Athenaeum, a literary magazine published in London since 1828 and the smaller and newer Nation.
From 1923–30 the literary editor was Leonard Woolf; Woolf would help impecunious young authors, including Robert Graves and E.M. Forster who he knew through the Hogarth Press by commissioning them to write reviews and articles; there were others, such as Edwin Muir who had come to his attention at the Nation and who he would publish at Hogarth.
