A Companion to Piers Plowman is the first comprehensive guide to William Langland's fourteenth-century masterpiece. Until now no single volume has discussed the broad range of issues raised here, nor have previous studies drawn on such an internationally distinguished group of Langland scholars.
John A. Alford is Professor of English, Michigan State University.
"Absolutely essential reading for anyone interested in a serious consideration of Piers Plowman and also for anyone planning critical or scholarly investigation on it—in other words, for all students of the poem, all readers of the poem, and all scholars of the poem."—Robert Worth Frank, Jr.
