Virtually every magazine of the period had a poetry section. One would expect poetry from Ackermann's Repository of Arts, Literature etc., The Ladies' Monthly Museum and La Belle Assemblee. But The Gentleman's Magazine, as well as The Lady's Magazine, offered poetry. And more unexpectedly, The Annual Register, The European Magazine, and even The Theatrical Inquisitor printed poetry...a great deal of it.
Some offerings reflected the political world of the time, and some the trials of war:
|From The Annual Register 1814|
|from Repository of Arts 1812|
|from The Lady's Magazine January 1804|
|from La Belle Assemblee January 1807|
|from The Ladies' Monthly Museum July 1816|
One editor of The London Magazine (1820-1829 incarnation) was blunt with one writer:
|from The Gentleman's Magazine June 1803|
|from The Theatrical Inquisitor 1821|
|from The European Magazine January 1813|
