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

November 18th, 2002

Librettist W.S. (William Schwenk) Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan) is born in London, 1836.

W.S. Gilbert, b. November 18, 1836, d. 1911

Although Gilbert aspired to literary renown as a serious playwright, he achieved stardom as the writer of some of cleverest comic satiric writing in his collaboration, sometimes stormy, with composer Arthur Sullivan. Together they created a delightful cache of musical comedies, still performed continuously throughout the world.

Suggested Reading Libretti The G&S oeuvre.
