This was followed by Blank Verse (1798) and Pride's Cure (1802).Lamb worked for the East India Company in London but managed to contribute articles to several journals and newspapers including London Magazine, The Morning Chronicle, Morning Post and the The Quarterly Review.Charles Lamb died in 1834.
