About Charles Lamb

Charles Lamb (1775-1834) was an English essayist best known for his humorous "Essays of Elia" from which the essay "A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig" is taken. Lamb enjoyed a rich social life and became part of a group of young writers that included William Hazlitt, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and Samuel Taylor Coleridge with whom he shared a lifelong friendship. Lamb never achieved the same literary success as his friends but his influence on the English essay form cannot be underestimated. His book, "Specimens of the English Dramatic Poets" is remembered for popularizing the work of Shakespeare's contemporaries.
