Example text

However, as Joel Wiener has suggested (‘How’), to understand the cultural determinants of these changes requires a more systematic and balanced analysis than Arnold offers. Along with both Alan Lee (ch. 4) and Laurel Brake (Subjugated, ch. 5), Wiener argues that the phenomenon of New Journalism should be seen not simply as an abrupt consequence of commercialization, but also as the slower filtering into the mainstream press of developments visible rather earlier in the century in popular and provincial weekly newspapers.

This can be seen initially in a number of unstamped penny Sunday papers which openly imitated the names and formats of established stamped Sundays – like The Weekly Dispatch, Bell’s Life in London and Sporting Chronicle (1822–86), and The Sunday Times, with their varying combinations of radical politics, crime reporting, lively woodcuts, and sports coverage. The penny imitations were generally four-page folios with a prominent woodcut beneath the heading banner. They seem to have narrowly escaped breaching the Stamp Act, since their main appeal was lurid crime reporting that was at least semi-fictional, but they also tended to follow The Sunday Times in offering melodramatic serial fiction, usually on the front page.

Regular and stable local daily newspapers were established for the first time in the major cities, whether entirely new organs like the Sheffield Daily Telegraph and Liverpool Daily Post (both 1855), or by conversion from established weekly papers, as in the case of the Glasgow Herald (1859) and Leeds Mercury (1861). All of these sold at only 1d an issue, and there were at least 50 such dailies outside London by 1865.
