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

August 12th, 2002

American educator and author Edith Hamilton (The Greek Way, 1930) is born in Dresden, Germany in 1867.

hamiltoncover.pngEdith Hamilton, frustrated in her day by the impossibility of pursuing a doctorate in her chosen field, classics, went on to teach herself and in turn teach Americans the stories of Greek and Roman mythology. She drew her material entirely from classical Hebrew, Greek, and Latin literature rather than from archaeology, and her book Mythology has been a standard in high schools and universities since its publication.

Suggested Reading The Greek Way, 1930. The Roman Way, 1932. The Prophets of Israel, 1936. Mythology, 1942. The Echo of Greece, 1957.
