Dorothy Sayers Dorothy L. Sayers Books Oxford-educated Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957) was one of the most popular authors of the Golden Age era. Born in England in 1893, Dorothy Sayers received her degree at university in medieval literature. Following her graduation, besides publishing two volumes of poetry, she began to write detective stories to earn money. Mystery Time Line Welcome Time Line Cicero Edgar Allan Poe ... Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Greats Websites Agatha Christie Nancy Drew Alfred Hitchcock Charlie Chan ... Clue Chronicles Her first novel, "Whose Body?" (1923), introduced Lord Peter Wimsey, the character for which she is best known. Wimsey, with his signature monocle and somewhat foppish air, appeared in eleven novels and several short stories. Working with his friend, Inspector Parker of Scotland Yard, Wimsey solved cases usually involving relatives or close friends. Dorothy L. Sayers was well known for "combining detective writing with expert novelistic writing," and the imaginative ways in which her victims were disposed of. Among the many causes of death seen in her novels were, among others, poisoned teeth fillings, a cat with poisoned claws, and a dagger made of ice! (The Whodunit) Dorothy Sayers also edited several mystery anthologies collected under the heading "The Omnibus of Crime" (1929), which included a noteworthy opening essay on the history of the mystery genre.

    Agent Bruce Hunter
    A refined author with a talent for wry mysteries spiced with quotations of verse and observations about English society, Dorothy L. Sayers created aristocratic sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey. Though best known for her entertaining crime novels, the lively minded Sayers also wrote plays, poetry and essays on Christianity. There were 11 novels and 21 short stories featuring Lord Peter Wimsey. In her fifth novel Strong Poison (1930), she introduced Harriet Vane, a mystery writer whose fiancé dies in a manner described in one of her stories. Harriet is in the dock because she has an extensive knowledge of poisons. Lord Peter is determined to prove her innocence, and to make her his wife. The two sleuths appear as a husband-and-wife team in three subsequent novels. One of them, Gaudy Night (1935), finds Harriet Vane caught in a tug-of-war between her love for Lord Peter and her growing satisfaction with her work, and struggling to balance womanhood and personhood. Sayers may have been inspired by Christie's Partners in Crime stories, each featuring Tuppence and Tommy, and each parodying some other mystery writer. But Dashiell Hammett was surely influenced by Sayers when creating his Nick and Nora Thin Man series several years later.

    B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Dorothy L(eigh) Sayers (1893-1957) British novelist, essayist, medieval scholar and anthologist. Sayers is best-known for her stories about the amateur aristocratic detective hero Lord Peter Wimsey, who made his breakthrough in the novel WHOSE BODY? (1923), wearing a top hat like Fred Astaire. After the late 1930s, Sayers wrote no more detective novels, but concentrated on theological dramas, radio plays and verse. "Lord Peter's library was one of the most delightful bachelor rooms in London. Its scheme was black and primrose; its walls were lined with rare editions, and its chairs and Chesterfield sofa suggested the embraces of the houris. In one corner stood a black baby-grand, and wood fire leaped on a wide old-fashioned hearth, and the Sevres vases on the chimney-piece were filled with ruddy and gold chrysanthemums." (from Whose Body? Dorothy Sayers was born in Oxford as the daughter of the Rev. Henry Sayers, the director of the Christchurch Cathedral Choir School, and Helen Mary (Leigh) Sayers. She was very gifted from the early age in languages, learning Latin by the age of seven and French from her governess. In 1912 she won a scholarship to the Oxford women's college Somerville, and in 1916 she published her first book, a verse collection titled OP I. In 1920 Sayers earned her M.A., among one of the first group of women to be granted degrees from Oxford University. She worked as a teacher in Yorkshire and in France, and as a reader for an Oxford publishing house. During these years Sayers went through a period she did not advertise much later. She had an illegitimate son, who was brought up by her cousin, Ivy Shrimpton. The father was Bill White, a motorcyclist and car salesman. Sayers rejected contraceptives, which caused a problem with the Russian born-novelist John Cournos. Letters from an unhappy love affair with him are now housed at Harvad University. Although her cousin took care of the child, Sayers followed closely his upbringing and supplied funds for this purpose. In 1926 Sayers married to the journalist, Captain Oswald Arthur Fleming. He was divorced and had two children. He died in 1950.

    15. Dorothy L Sayers, Writer And Theologian
    dorothy L sayers died 17 December 1957 (Encyclopedia Americana) or perhaps the next day (Who Was Who), leaving her translation of the Comedy unfinished.
    Dorothy Leigh Sayers was an English writer and scholar, born at Oxford in 1893, the only child of an Anglican clergyman. She studied medieval literature at Oxford (Somerville College), being one of the first women to graduate (1915) from that university. Her first published writings were two volumes of verse, 1916 Op. 1 1919 Catholic Tales
    Here is a sample from the former volume:
    Christ walks the world again, his lute upon his back, His red robe worn to tatters, his riches gone to rack. The wind that wakes the morning blows his hair about his face, And his arms and legs are ragged with the thorny briar's embrace, For the hunt is up behind him, and his sword is at his side. Christ the bonny outlaw walks the whole world wide, Singing: "Lady, lady, will you come away with me,
    To lie among the bracken, and eat the barley bread?
    We shall see new suns arise, in golden far-off skies,
    for the son of God and woman has not where to lay his head."
    She worked for several years writing advertising copy, until she was able to support herself by the sale of her books and stories. During these years she joined a motorcycle gang, fell in love with a member, and bore him a son, Anthony. A friend of mine remarks: "What a shame that she did not convert C S Lewis and his friends to motor-cycling. I can see them now, cruising down the road seven abreast, at the sacred speed of 153 miles per hour [a reference to numerological speculations about John 21:11], shrieking their dreaded war-cry of
