"Donaldson--one of the century's most distinguished medieval scholars--began his career working on Piers and continued studying it all his life. His translation not only skillfully reproduces the alliterative verse of the original, but also reanimates the poem in all its mercurial changes: lyrical, mystical, satirical--and funny. Elizabeth Kirk and Judith Anderson have supplied helpful notes and glossary, and an introduction. Both the translation and the apparatus open up the poem's world for every reader"--Back cover
