From the Publisher"A thoughtful interdisciplinary study, Breen's work constitutes a valuable addition to the field of vernacular studies in the Middle Ages."
-Mary C. Flannery, Times Literary Supplement
"The pieces of her puzzle, when assembled, produce an innovative and compelling literary history that will surely influence any scholar working on medieval vernacular writers."
-Denise L. Despres,The University of Puget Sound
"A thoughtful interdisciplinary study, Breen's work constitutes a valuable addition to the field of vernacular studies in the Middle Ages. Her close attention to the Latin, Anglo-Norman and evolving Middle English of her sources makes her arguments convincing, even if further investigation will be needed to reveal the more localized effects of the evolution of habitus in the medieval English imagination."
-Mary C. Flannery,TLS
"...an excellent book. Deeply considered and extensively researched, it illuminates Piers Plowman and Chaucer’s Treatise in new ways by locating them within a complex understanding of the use of the vernacular in late fourteenth-century England."
