This comprehensive, readable guide leads the student chronologically through the entire text and is designed to be read alongside it.

A Guidebook to 'Piers Plowman': * clarifies and explores Langland's thinking * contextualises the religious, political and social issues he raises * details the genres and sources the poet uses * employs up-to-date bibliographical knowledge to offer alternative critical interpretations and suggest ways of relating these to the poet's key concerns * explains Langland's historical, theological and psychological assumptions in helpful inserted text boxes * features illustrations and suggestions for further reading. Concise and approachable, this is an invaluable tool to help students appreciate the originality and modernity of Langland's poetry.
