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

October 27th, 2002

In 1795, English poet John Keats (Endymion, 1818) is born in Finsbury Pavement.

Keats died so young that he was able to produce only a small amount of poetry, none of it appreciated much in his lifetime. In fact it is said the savage reviews of Endymion precipitated his death. The poems he did write, however, have taken their place among the finest in the English language.

Suggested Reading Poetry Poems, 1816. Endymion, 1818.
