This was the period in which the great era of Victorian literary periodicals began. Titles from the 1830s, such as Sharpe’s London Magazine (1829–70), the Metropolitan Magazine (1831– 57), and Bentley’s Miscellany (1837–68), paved the way for the significantly greater quantities of short fiction that appeared towards the end of the century in periodicals such as the Cornhill Magazine (1860–1975), Temple Bar Magazine (1860–1906), and the Strand Magazine (1891–1950). Writers and the Magazine Trade The early-nineteenth-century periodical market was robust, competitive, aggressive, and highly political.

The reaction of the British critical press to The Sketch Book was varied and often politically motivated, but the attention that the reviewers paid Irving during the early 1820s was crucial in placing his short fiction in such a seminal position. Irving’s nationality was immediately as interesting an issue as the quality of his prose, and he was seized upon by the partisan periodicals as the ideal vehicle through which to espouse their particular stance on America. The Examiner, Leigh Hunt’s radical mouthpiece, perceived Irving’s political potential very early on.

It offered a way to make money by means of a mode that was much less likely than the novel to be subjected to close critical scrutiny. Since the ebb in the literary status of the novel during the 1790s and 1800s, longer works of fiction had experienced some critical resurgence through the 1810s. Short fiction, in comparison, was still a relatively ephemeral genre: one which was conceptually tied up with the magazines and the consequent implications of transience. Irving, it seems, shared this general view.
