Tatler

Tatler. A periodical edited by Richard Steele under the pseudonym ‘Isaac Bickerstaff ’, it appeared three times a week between April 1709 and January 1711. Addison was an important collaborator. Mixing news, political opinion, and social comment, the Tatler gradually assumed the format to be made familiar by the Spectator of a single essay on a social, moral, literary, or philosophical theme.
