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

April 24th, 2002

English novelist Anthony Trollope (Barchester Towers, 1857) is born in London in 1815.

trollope2Anthony Trollope, b. April 24, 1815, d. 1882

Begin with the Barsetshire books and then skip around in all the others for unalloyed pleasure. You’ll find interesting characters more fully presented than Dickens’s and a gentle but unrelenting vein of humorous social criticism, as well as fascinating portraits of London’s powerful institutions. In addition to his many novels, Trollope published more than a dozen volumes of short stories and two dozen on travel and literary criticism. His excessively modest autobiography reveals a writer of enormous energy and industry.

Suggested Reading Novels The Chronicles of Barsetshire, 1855-1867. The Palliser Novels, 1865-1880. Memoirs An Autobiography, 1883.
