"The diverse problems Piers Plowman has posed for modern criticism have made ample opportunity for a thoroughly unfocused work, but this collection of essays holds together remarkably well. . . . All are excellent and each covers a remarkable amount of material. . . This book is an essential starting point for an examination of Piers, whatever facet of the poem one wishes to look at, and is an excellent introduction to late 14th-century literature. Highly recommended." -- Choice
