Description - William Langland's "Piers Plowman" by Kathleen M. Hewett-Smith

Because it has much to contribute toward lively debates on such issues as race, gender, dissent, popular religion and culture, "Piers Plowman" has enjoyed renewed critical attention. This collection of interdisciplinary essays aims to provide a fresh examination of some of the issues central to the study of this seminal poem. Organized under headings including Langland and the age of Chaucer, the poetry of "Piers Plowman", allegory reconsidered and Langland through the eyes of theory, this book of essays explores the aesthetic dimensions of the poem, its relevance to contemporary literary theory and to reconsiderations of 14th-century culture and ideology.
