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

July 21st, 2002

American poet (Harold) Hart Crane (The Bridge, 1930) is born in 1899 in Garrettsville, Ohio.

Hart Crane, b. July 21, 1899, d. 1932

cranehartbyevansCrane found inspiration in the poetry of T.S. Eliot, but his own poetry was an entirely different brand of modernism that might have had a greater influence had he not committed suicide at thirty-two. Later poets like Robert Lowell and Derek Walcott admired his work, and he also became a favorite of literary critics. In The Bridge he tried for an epic in the mold of Eliot’s The Wasteland, but with less of Eliot’s pessimism.

Suggested Reading Poetry collections White Buildings, 1926. The Bridge, 1930.
