'Our Sister, the Death of the Body'

Non-fiction ~ review
Published in The Spectator, 5th April 1930
(Collected in Sea Mist, 2005)
295 words
(First read 03/01/2015)

Benson reviews the novel Here Is Thy Victory by Iris Barry (1895-1969)*.  To call it 'short' would be an understatement.  The title is culled from St Francis of Assisi's The Canticle of the Sun, in case you were wondering.  (I was.)
It's available online here.

*This is the lady in question.  The Wikipedia article doesn't mention this or any other novel ~ but The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction does.
