Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

Lord Byron, b. January 22, 1788, d. 1824

byronbywestall.jpgDescribed as “mad, bad and dangerous to know,” Byron was the most brilliant versifier of his age, the swashbuckling epitome of the Romantic artist, as famous for his amours as for his poetry. His early death contributed greatly to his reputation, but he is remembered now for his free spirit and for his deliciously frank and witty poetry.

Suggested Reading Poems She Walks in Beauty, 1814. My Soul is Dark, 1815. So, we’ll go no more a roving, 1830. Major Works English Bards and Scotch Reviewers, 1809. Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, 1812-1818. The Prisoner of Chillon, 1816. Prometheus, 1816. Manfred, 1817. Don Juan, 1819-1824.
