O'Sullivan, Seamus

(1879-1958)
   He was born James Sullivan Starkey, in Dublin, and spent most of his adult life in the affluent Dublin suburb of Rathgar, where his father, William Starkey (1836-1918), was a doctor. He edited The Dublin Magazine from August 1923 to August 1925 as a monthly and from January 1926 to June 1958 as a quarterly, ceasing publication on O'Sullivan's death. The magazine featured fiction, poetry, drama and reviews; contributors included almost every significant Irish writer of the period, including Samuel Beckett and Patrick Kavanagh (see entries). Some of his poems: "A Blessing on the Cows," "The Convent," "The Half Door," "Lament for Sean MacDermott," "The Sedges," "Splendid and Terrible," "The Starling Lake," "The Trains."
