E. C. Bentley (10 July 1875 - 30 March 1956) was a popular English novelist and humorist of the early twentieth century, and the inventor of the clerihew, an irregular form of humorous verse on biographical topics. One of the best known is this (1905): Sir Christopher Wren, Went to dine with some men. He said, If anyone calls, Say Im designing St. Pauls. Born in London, and educated at St Pauls School and Merton College, Oxford, Bentley worked as a journalist on several newspapers, including the Daily Telegraph. His first published collection of poetry, titled Biography for Beginners (1905), popularized the clerihew form- it was followed by two other collections, in 1929 and 1939. His detective novel, Trents Last Case (1913), was much praised, numbering Dorothy L. Sayers among its admirers, and with its labyrinthine and mystifying plotting can be seen as the first truly modern mystery.
