Feb. 10: Charles Lamb, English author


Charles Lamb (1775-1834) English author whose Essays of Elia are considered his greatest work, exploring a variety of subjects in a charming, conversational manner. He is also known for writing, with his sister (whom I recently learned had, in a fit of madness, stabbed their mother to death) the Tales from Shakespeare for young readers, and, on his own, The Adventures of Ulysses for a similar audience.
