Piers Plowman: the evidence for authorship by George Kane( Book )

The major edition of the three versions of Piers Plowman which the Athlone Press is in the process of publishing and of which Professor Kane is the general editor was not planned to include discussion of the authorship of the poem. The editors were agreed at the outset in believing that no real case for multiple authorship had been established in the course of the debate initiated by J.M. Manley in 1906, and they felt that a majority of Middle English scholars would support this view. They were satisfied that the hypothesis of single authorship was the best hypothesis to account for all aspec

"The first of its kind since Sir Walter Skeat's pioneering Glossarial Index of 1886, this glossary takes full account of the intervening advances in both Middle English lexicography and Piers Plowman scholarship. Each definition is supported by reference to instances in each of the forms where the word occurs. Where this applies they were chosen with an eye to the dialectal and morphological differences in the three texts, and to the rhetorically sophisticated grammar of the poet's style. The glossary, moreover, gives full attention to the remoteness of many elements in the poem's content from modern culture and its values."--Jacket

Piers Plowman by William Langland( Book )

6 editions published between 1960 and 1988 in English, Middle and English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition has been prepared with a full sense of the intrinsic literary power and complexity of the work, and also of its significance as a record of social and religious conflict and crises in a turbulent age. The introduction and the extensive notes and glossary are designed to enable the student to respond to all the layers of meaning in the text and to Langland's vivid and versatile style. The C-text is chosen as the basis for the edition as being the latest revision of the poem, and therefore as bearing to some extent the author's stamp of authority. It is possible to argue, furthermore, that the C-revision presents a clearer and less cluttered argument than B, and sharpens the lineaments of the poem
