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.

Ginsberg the poet built a reputation on an output of very mixed quality — only Howl, 1955, and Kaddish, 1961, represent him at his best. He was more famous as a crusader against censorship and as a political rebel with a goofy penchant for Buddhism and sexual waywardness.

Suggested Reading Poems Howl and Other Poems, 1956. Kaddish and Other Poems, 1961. Reality Sandwiches, 1963.
