Robertson Davies Dies

TORONTO () -- Canadian author Robertson Davies, whose sympathetic, lighthearted portrayal of emotionally troubled characters won him an international audience, died of a stroke Saturday night at age 82.

"He thought life was fascinating,'' his wife Brenda said. "He was very keen that they should take a look at it as magical, fascinating, extraordinary.''

Davies' best-known works are two trilogies written in the 1970s and 1980s packed with magic, arcana and Jungian theories.
