The England of 'Piers Plowman': William Langland and his Vision of the Fourteenth Century

Review
Makes this wonderful poem seem more accessible to everyone. MEDIUM AEVUMA well-balanced and well-written introduction to the most important aspects of the social context of the poem, not only for the general reader and for undergraduates and more advanced students but also for the specialist about to undertake a new study of Piers Plowman. ANGLIADu Boulay's object is ...to introduce England and English society as William Langland perceived them... (he) has executed it superlatively well. Whether one is reading Piers Plowman for the first or for the umpteenth time there are rich rewards to be found in this book, not only in its fine scholarship but also in its humane perception of the spiritual dilemmas of a past age. MAURICE KEEN, ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW (6/94)

Book Description
Piers Plowman is the greatest poem of the Middle English Alliterative Revival. Langland (perhaps c. 1330-c. 1386) writes passionately about social justice and religious integrity, weaving into the dream of a weary wanderer the whole of humanity's struggle against sin. This edition of the B-Text has been described as "a landmark in Langland studies."

Book Description
Piers Plowman is one of the most significant works of medieval literature. Astonishing in its cultural and theological scope, William Langland's iconoclastic masterpiece is at once a historical relic and a deeply spiritual vision, probing not only the social and religious aristocracy but also the day-to-day realities of a largely voiceless proletariat class. E. Talbot Donaldson's translation of the text has been selected for this Norton Critical Edition because of its skillful emulation of the original poem's distinct alliterative verse. Selections of the authoritative Middle English text are also included for comparative analysis. "Sources and Backgrounds" includes a large collection of contemporary religious and historical documents pertaining to the poem, including selections from the Douai Bible, accounts of the...

Book Description
The popularity of William Langland's great medieval poem Piers Plowman survived long after its appearance in the fourteenth century. Testimony of the poem's popularity manifests itself in the fifty-six surviving medieval copies of the manuscript, none of which is signed by Langland and each of which introduces its own set of uncertainties.
