Sayers, like Lewis, used the vehicle of genre fiction to explore something rarely explored in modern fiction: “marriage as a human relationship which has a potential for good, for human growth, individuation, mutuality, and love.” The fulfillment of the potential in the marriage of Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane is explored in detail.
