Charles Lamb Quotes

Charles Lamb (1775 – 1834) was an English writer and antiquarian. He left school at the age of fourteen and soon after began working at the British East India Company where he was employed for twenty five years. He is best known for his Essays of Elia, but also remembered for the children’s book Tales from Shakespeare, which he co-authored with his sister, Mary. Both he and his sister suffered periods of mental illness; but later recovering, their home became a popular place for weekly gatherings of many important theatrical and literary figures.
