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 26th, 2002

In 1895, English poet and novelist Robert Graves (I, Claudius, 1934) is born in London.

Robert Graves, b. July 26, 1895, d. 1985

graves1929.pngGraves was an unusual writer, in that he was prolific as a poet, novelist, critic, and translator of Classical Latin and Ancient Greek texts. His interpretations of Greek myths make fascinating reading, and his memoir Good-bye to All That is a moving testament to the horrors of war. A true Renaissance man.
