The New Age

Founded as a left-liberal "Weekly Record of Culture, Social Service, and Literary Life," it had little impact until taken over by A.R. Orage in 1907 (with financial backing from George Bernard Shaw and others). Primarily a vehicle for essays and criticism, it published some fiction, notably the early short stories of Katherine Mansfield. Orage's interests turned to mysticism, and after his departure from the paper in 1922 it declined.
