There will be a greater range of contributors, including some "eminent authors" and ex-writers for the London Weekly Review.

It promises "an increased attention to Foreign Literature, to the Drama, to Works of Embellishment, and to the progress of the Arts and Sciences in Foreign Countries, no less than at home". And now containing "commercial intelligence", it is expected to "find its way to the Study, the Breakfast-table, and the Counting-house, of the intelligent throughout the Kingdom, as well as in the British possessions abroad"]

The Athenaeum finds such a neat division between works of prose and poetry implausible and asks, "Can such a critic have any idea of a human being as a complex, but homogeneous whole?" It goes on to defend the worth of Coleridge`s prose writings, though it implies they may be too demanding for the "honest but conceited man, who writes in the Westminster Review"]
