Since 1968, The Scriblerian and the Kit-Cats has offered imaginative, insightful, and concise reviews of critical discussion of the English literature of the late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century. The bi-annual journal addresses recent criticism of Addison, Behn, Congreve, Defoe, Dennis, Dryden, Fielding, Finch, Garth, Gay, Haywood, Hogarth, Mandeville, Montagu, Parnell, Pilkington, Pope, Richardson, Rochester, Rowe, Rymer, Settle, Shaftesbury, Smollett, Steele, Sterne, Swift, Thomson, Toland, and Vanbrugh, as well as discussion of the history and culture of the period.
The best single review journal of the early period and a must for any student of the age.

Its worldwide coverage of work in the first half of the century is impressive.

Donald Greene, Survey of Periodical Publications

The reviews and essays are notable for their keen scholarly insights and the blessed absence of academic pedantry. Students of the eighteenth century will find this journal an indispensable source for their research. They will also discover that it is a pleasure to read

Thelma Atkins, Serials Review

The joys of reading [this] lively little journal should not be neglected.

I subscribe to PMLA and Eighteenth-Century Studies largely out of a sense of obligation to my profession and to my specialty within the profession. I subscribe to The Scriblerian because I am addicted to it.

"[The Scriblerian] put me on to an article I did not know about very relevant to my current research."
