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.

A Week in Literary History

February 21st, 2002

English poet W.H. (Wystan Hugh) Auden (The Age of Anxiety, 1947) is born in York, 1907.

Auden will certainly be remembered as one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century, just as his compatriot and sometime collaborator Benjamin Britten will be remembered as one of its greatest composers. The two are alike in combining rigorous form with evocative and highly literate content. Auden, despite (or because of?) his wartime defection to America, became the poet of his age, its conscience and scribe.
