Read full description of the books:



Dorothy L. Sayers, detective novelist, poet, scholar, playwright and Christian apologist, spent the last fourteen years of her life reading and translating Dante's "Divine Comedy". The first two volumes of her translation, "Hell" and "Purgatory", were published during her lifetime, but when she died in 1957 the third volume, "Paradise", was unfinished. It was completed by her friend Barbara Reynolds. And now Barbara Reynolds has written the first full-length study of this illuminating stage in the creative life of Dorothy Sayers. Drawing on personal reminiscences and unpublished letters, she explores the dynamic impact of Dante upon a mature mind. New light is shed on Dorothy Sayers's personality, her relationship with her friends, her methods of work, and her intellectual and spiritual development. Readers of Dante, no less than readers of Sayers, will find this of interest.
