Maturin, Charles Robert

Maturin, Charles Robert an Irish divine, was born in 1782, and was educated at Trinity College, Dublin. Though popular as a pulpit orator, the income. from his living — the curacy of St. Peter's, in the Irish metropolis — was inadequate to his support, and he turned aside to secular literary enterprises. He secured special distinction as a poet and dramatist. He died in 1825. Says a contemporary, "The genius of Maturin was great, but it was not always under the control of a pure taste." He published a collection of his Sermons, besides many secular works, several of which were first brought out under the assumed name of Dennis Jasper Murphy.
