The Critic

Initially the book review section was the outstanding feature; in addition departments of drama, fine arts, news notices, literature and poetry were well written and edited. Putnam's purchased the weekly in 1898 turning it into a monthly. The book review section was shortened; illustrations were added; articles and poetry increased.
