Historical Who is Who

LAMB, Charles

1775 - 1834


Prolific writer of essays, plays and verse, whose life was greatly shaped by his attending to his sister’s mental illness and close friendship with Coleridge. His persistence in spite of initially limited recognition, financial hardship and daily responsibilities is itself remarkable. There is both pith and moment in his reflections,  eg ‘On the danger of confounding moral with personal deformity’.
