- The Cambridge Quarterly was established on, and remains committed to, the principle that literature is an art, and that the purpose of art is to give pleasure and enlightenment. The journal devotes itself principally to literary criticism and its fundamental aim to take a critical look at accepted views. The Cambridge Quarterly also regularly publishes articles on music, cinema, painting, and sculpture, and endows a prize for, and publishes, the best Cambridge University Finals dissertation each year.
