"I always have a quotation for everything - it saves original thinking." -- Dorothy L. Sayers
Dorothy Leigh Sayers (usually pronounced , although Sayers herself preferred and encouraged the use of her middle initial to facilitate this pronunciation) (Oxford, 13 June 1893 — Witham, 17 December 1957) was a renowned English crime writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator and Christian humanist. She was also a student of classical and modern languages. She is best known for her mysteries, a series of novels and short stories set between World War I and World War II that feature English aristocrat and amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey. However, Sayers herself considered her translation of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She is also known for her plays and essays.
