This comprehensive, readable guide works chronologically through the entire text of Piers Plowman and is designed to be read alongside it. Assuming no previous knowledge, it equips readers to enjoy and analyse the text for themselves by clarifying Langland's thinking, contextualising the religious, political and social issues raised, detailing the genres and sources he is using, and offering alternative critical interpretations at key points. An invaluable tool to help readers appreciate the originality and modernity of Langland's poetry.
ANNA BALDWIN is a teacher of English at Hills Rd Sixth Form College, Cambridge, UK.
