William Maginn

Author Code: IWMX

Born: 1794 - Dublin, Ireland

Died: 1842 - Walton-on-Thames, England

Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, Maginn received his LL.D in 1816 and soon began contributing to the Literary Gazette. He moved to London in 1824 and served for a short time as Paris correspondent for . When the paper folded, he founded the ultra-Tory newspaper the which he also edited. In 1830, he was one of the main supporters of Fraser's Magazine. After he wrote a scathing criticism of Grantley Berkeley's novel Berkeley Castle in 1836, he was forced to fight a duel with Berkeley. Shots were fired, but no one was harmed. Maginn was a regular contributor to Blackwood's Magazine for many years and was hailed as one of the most brilliant magazine writers of his time. Unfortunately, very few of his works have been identified conclusively because of the anonymous nature of both Blackwood's and Fraser's. Maginn was also one of the first contributors to Punch. Maginn died of tuberculosis, probably contracted in debtor's prison. One of his known works was Whitehall (1827). Most of Maginn's works were essays, short stories, criticism and journalistic articles.
