Charles Magnin  was a French author. He received a brilliant education, and in 1813 became assistant in the imperial library, and in 1832 one of the directors of that institution. His theatrical criticisms in Le Globe (1826-1830), his lectures at the Sorbonne (1834-1835) on the origin of the modern stage, and his various writings won for him the praise of Sainte-Beuve, and a seat in the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres. He also wrote poetry and plays.
