Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This vigorous and ingenious reading of Piers Plowman manages in compressed compass to convey a wide range of ideas articulated by the poem, implied through its poetic strategies, and associated with late-medieval Christianity. Summing up: recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty."
Choice

"In a world of texts that look to take readers through the whole of Piers Plowman, Steiner's contribution stands out as an ideal example. Historically grounded, accessible, engaging, and often exciting, it will no doubt prove a classroom staple. Students, instructors, and scholars will want to include this in their collections and will surely rely on it as a welcome resource with frequency and gratitude."
