R. B. Sheridan R. B. Sheridan, or Richard Brinsley Sheridan, was born in Dublin in 1751 and died in poverty in 1816, although he was buried in Westminster Abbey. A politician and a dramatist, perhaps his most famous legacy is that of "Malapropisms", the unintentional use of humorous words, derived from the character Mrs Malaprop in The Rivals.
