The author analyzes the existence of the genre of literary review in modern thin magazine and newspaper press. Carried out content analysis of reviews taken from newspapers and thin magazines (these including “НГ-ExLibris” and “Kommersant- Weekend”) allows us to single out two literary-critical paradigms, within the frames of which modern reviewers work. These are Western and traditional Russian para­digms.

Keywords: literary review, literary-critical paradigm
