Piers Plowman by William Langland


The 14th-century poem The Vision of William Concerning Piers the Plowman is generally attributed to William Langland.

Great Malvern Priory (shown left) is all that remains of the monastery where William Langland was educated and worked on Piers Plowman. Langland gave up the priesthood for marriage and his poetry.

A religious allegory, Piers Plowman is written as a dream vision, a popular medieval form in which a story is presented as if the author had dreamed it. Piers dreams 'a marvellous dream' that reveals the 'sad pageant of men's miseries', poverty and injustice and the corruption of the Church.
