Much in our culture discounts the value of Art. Or we view the core human desires which are the ostensible subject matter of most Art as suspect, dangerous. Perhaps understandably, we often prefer our kids to have common sense than sublime passion. Marketable skills rather than heroism.
Indeed, we often disregard the value of hopes and dreams, themselves. We marginalize goodness, decency, nobility of motive, or even love itself. We treat them as nice additions to an already successful life, even if their pursuit is, in our view, unrealistically sentimental.
Most of us nonetheless recognize — at least intellectually, or by someone else’s attestation — that Art has value, even if we are leery of some of what Art does.

Definitely taks the edge aff turning 40 when you get a book token fae a friend! Upgraded my old copy of surprised by Joy by #cslewis, bought the first wimsey novel by #dorothysayers...and the AMS book is from the library. Hmmmm, what to read next?

Made it to the place where Dorothy Sayers lived from 1921-1929 before it got dark. #dorothysayers #greatjamesstreet #lordpeterwimsey #mystery #london

„Má pachuť vášně, která překonala svůj zenit a změnila se v únavu,“ řekl s náhlou vážností.

But until we find out how, one theory is as fanciful as another. We've got to laugh or break our hearts in this world. -Lord Peter Wimsey

“I always have a quotation for everything— it saves original thinking.” —Dorothy Sayers (dialogue from Have HIs Carcase, 1932) 📚 Well, it sure does help with my Instagram feed, so there’s that. 😉😆😜😂 (Sayers also happens to be my favorite of the old British mystery writers, even more than Agatha Christie. Have you checked her out? I ❤️ Harriet Vane!) #dorothysayers #havehiscarcase

DANTE. Dorothy L. Sayers. Introductory Papers on Dante, 1954. Dorothy Sayers was drawn to Dante after reading The Figure of Beatrice. She devoted the last years of her life to translating The Divine Comedy and this first edition collecting these lectures was an early result of her labors. #dantealighieri #dorothysayers #bookstagram #thedivinecomedy #poetry

Someone asked me about mysteries. I love them. I blew a prep school interview when I was 14 by admitting that The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was the best book I'd read recently. I believe the desired answer was A Separate Peace. Since then I've read a lot of mysteries of every type some better and many a lot worse than Christie, whose reputation seems to have risen with time. One of my favorite mystery writers in the Christie vein is Dorothy Sayers

The first Sayers I read was a copy of The Nine Tailors pulled off a cousin's bookshelf to occupy me when I was the only "young person" in a house party of adult relatives (my mother has an alarming number of half-siblings) in the English countryside. There was probably no TV, or if there was it was likely showing live darts matches, tennis or the test pattern of the girl playing tic-tac-toe with a creepy clown doll. Long story short, I tore through Nine Tailors and went on to read all her other mysteries in whatever order I could lay my hands upon them.
The mysteries all set in 1930s England are excellent puzzles that keep you turning the page. But I also loved the relationship between her detective, the charming Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane, a mystery writer he initially meets when she is on trial for poisoning her lover in Strong Poison. Wimsey exonerates her and then proposes. She turns him down and they go on together solving crimes and inching toward the altar. Hats off to Sayers for creating Harriet Vane--an Oxford grad and taker of lovers--in 1930. Harriet is a rather determined and sturdy personality makes a nice foil for the rich, charmingly self-effacing and somewhat fragile second son of a Duke. Wimsey served in the Great War as an officer, witnessed total horror and ultimately suffered complete nervous breakdown as a result.
It is in the war that Wimsey met sergeant Melvyn Bunter, who goes on to become his faithful butler. I used wish I had a Lord Peter Wimsey now I wish I had a Bunter.
Start with Strong Poison and then read them in order or not. My personal favorites are Gaudy Night and The Nine Tailors. #bookstagram #mystery #dorothysayers #agathachristie #peterwimsey #pageturner

I love you - I am at rest with you - I have come home.💓 #DorothySayers

I don't actually homeschool because my kids are ages 20 months and not born yet, but I've been reading about education. I read "The Well-Trained Mind" a while ago, and am starting "The Lost Tools of Learning" now. #homemakingministries

A fruitful morning of research on the new book! #cslewis #dorothylsayers #dorothysayers #amwriting #bookstagram #books

Quote of the day #estebanapproved #DorothySayers

For the sole true end of education is simply this: to teach men how to learn for themselves; and whatever instruction fails to do this is effort spent in vain. - The Lost Tools of Learning by Dorothy L Sayers.

I was so happy with the little pile of books I’m currently reading, but then Gaudy Night started calling my name. Maybe just a couple chapters .... /// #dorothysayers #dorothylsayers #gaudynight #harrietvane #peterwimsey #oxford #themonk #matthewlewis #alanwatts #wisdomofinsecurity #books #reading #readinginbed #pelicaninthewilderness #isabelcolegate

Lord Peter is marvelous.
(So is Edward Petherbridge as Lord Peter.)
