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.

A Week in Literary History

March 26th, 2002

Much-honored American poet Robert (Lee) Frost (New Hampshire, 1923) is born in San Francisco, 1874.

Robert Frost, b. March 26, 1874, d. 1963

frost.jpgAbout fifty years ago, Robert Frost had become such a literary icon in America that people didn’t read him anymore, but Frost is not all “Stopping by Woods” or “The Road Not Taken.” His poetry, although often deceptively simple in form (not simple to write, however), is always “lovely, dark and deep,” and it lives up to his own definition: “It begins in delight and ends in wisdom.”
