Sayers on Trash (Also, Why the 'L'?‪)‬ The Dorothy L. Sayers Podcast

    • Books

"The Other Six Deadly Sins" and "Why Work?" are two lectures-turned-essays in which Sayers talks about trash, or rubbish. She connects the problem of rusting piles of tin cans  to two problems in man's nature: gluttony and avarice. In doing so, she not only gives us a good lesson, but also teaches us about pre-War and World War II Britain. 

Plus, a brief history of why we keep using her middle initial.
