Despite establishing itself in the 1920s and 1930s as one of the most influential English-language periodicals, the Criterion today is significantly underrated in the modernist canon of journals and little magazines. This relative neglect has occurred in part because it frustrated some readers for its idiosyncratic and sometimes socially and politically conservative angles, particularly after Eliot’s conversion to Anglo-Catholicism in 1927. Jason Harding points to several strong critiques of the journal, beginning with Lady Lilian Rothermere, who funded the magazine until 1927 when she withdrew her support after becoming “dissatisfied with the character of the journal” (2009, 390).
