Publisher Description

In 1947, British scholar, playwright, and novelist Dorothy Sayers stood in an Oxford hall and delivered a speech that would become a catalyst of the current classical education movement.

The Lost Tools of Learning is a flagship address presenting the tools that were given to students in the Middle Ages via the trivium, the study of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. For perhaps the first time, these trivium subjects were applied by Sayers to students' developmental stages. She also advocates the integration of subjects, and explains that training students to learn on their own is the chief goal of education.

This essay, which has influenced subsequent classical educators, is now available as an audio recording with the feel of being in the hall hearing Ms. Sayers herself. Read by native Briton Victoria Twigg, and introduced by Dr. Christopher Perrin.
