ITEM: The Vision Of Piers Plowman, by William Langland.
Piers Plowman stands at the center of medieval English literature along with Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, which in many ways it complements.
A weary wanderer falls asleep and dreams of a tower and a deep dungeon, and in between the world of humanity pursuing its business and pleasure...but his dream becomes a profound vision of redemption, in which the corruptions and injustices that occur daily are laid open with passionate truthfulness in poetry that combines vigorous realism and probing argument with moments of epic sublimity and lyrical beauty.
Edited by A.V.C. Schmidt of Balliol College, Oxford, this edition is the B-Text in Middle English, with an introduction, textual and literary commentary and a glossary.
