The Metropolitan: A monthly journal of literature, science, and the fine arts was a London monthly journal established by Thomas Campbell in 1831.[citation needed]

Campbell and Cyrus Redding were the first editors of the Metropolitan. Frederick Marryat became editor in 1832. From vol. 6 (1833) onwards the magazine went under the name The Metropolitan Magazine. Marryat appointed the novelist Edward Howard (1793-1841)[1] as a sub-editor in 1833: Howard serialized his semi-autobiographical Life of a Sub-Editor in the Metropolitan in 1834. Though Marryat resigned the editorship in 1835, he kept a connection with the Metropolitan for another year.[citation needed]

Contributors included the poet Maria Abdy (c. 1800-1867), the novelist and poet Isa Blagden (1816/17–73), Eliza Cook, Antonio Gallenga, the mesmerist Spencer Timothy Hall (1812–85), Hargrave Jennings (1817? – 1890), the philosopher Thomas Charles Morgan (c. 1780–1843), and the poet and novelist Annie Tinsley (1808–85).[2] Frederick William Nicholls Crouch, musician and composer (1808–96), was the musical reviewer. The magazine ceased publication in 1850.[citation needed]
