Piers the Ploughman by William Langland( Book )

65 editions published between 1959 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piers Plowman by William Langland( Book )

54 editions published between 1936 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 105 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

39 editions published between 1949 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a new annotated translation of the B-text, Langland's own extensive revision of his original text. One of the greatest poems of the English Middle Ages, Piers Plowman remains of enduring interest for its vivid picture of the whole life of medieval society, its deeply imaginative religious vision, and its passionate concern to see justice and truth prevail in our world

William Langland's 14th-century poem Piers Plowman is a disturbing and often humorous commentary on corruption and greed that remains meaningful today. The allegorical and satirical work revolves around the narrator's quest to live a good life, and takes the form of a series of dreams in which Piers, the honest plowman, appears in various guises. Characters such as Conscience, Fidelity and Charity tumble out of the text alongside Falsehood and Guile, and are instantly recognizable as our present-day politicians and celebrities, friends and neighbors. Along the way social issues are confronted, including governance, economic relations, criminal justice, public finance, marital relations and the limits of academic learning, as well as religious belief and the natural world. This book is a new verse translation of Piers from Middle English which preserves the energy, imagery and intent of the original, and retains its alliterative style. It derives from a 2012 arts festival presentation performed in the priory where Langland - a contemporary of Chaucer - was probably educated
