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

November 22nd, 2002

French author André Gide (The Immoralist, 1902) is born in Paris in 1869.

André Gide, b. November 22, 1869, d. 1951

Gide became famous as the conscience of his time. He was relentlessly forthright and clear in depicting his personal life in his work, and among the very first to see the error of the Soviet experiment and to speak out against imperialist regimes. His influence on Camus and Sartre was immense, but it was the example of his courage and frankness, coupled with a lucid writing style, that won him the Nobel Prize in 1947.
