Lecture and Discussion. This live class will be recorded and available for later viewing.

Dorothy Sayers, one of the first women in England to receive an Oxford degree, created one of the greatest and most loved fictional detectives: her aristocratic amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey. The eleven Wimsey novels, written during and set in inter-war Britain of the 1920s and ‘30s, showcase the period in ways that remain much admired. We will read and discuss three of her Wimsey novels, Clouds of Witness (1926), The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club (1928), and Murder Must Advertise (1933), considering their portrait of the Wimsey family and the social world of post-World War I England.
