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.

Last Week in Literary History

November 29th, 2002

Irish author C.S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (The Screwtape Letters, 1942) is born in 1898 in Belfast.

C.S. Lewis, b. November 29, 1898, d. 1963

Lewis’s writing rises above some of the formats he chose because of its clarity, and the depth of his thinking makes him a riveting read. His imaginative works have taken their places as classics that will be read long after Tolkien’s star has gone dark. Even his writing for children repays careful attention from adults, and he made genuine contributions to the study of Renaissance literature.

Suggested Reading Non-fiction Mere Christianity, 1943. Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life, 1955. English Literature in the Sixteenth Century (Excluding Drama), 1954. Fiction The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, 1950. The Screwtape Letters, 1942.
