Piers Plowman (written c. 1370–90) or Visio Willelmi de Petro Ploughman (William's Vision of Piers Plowman) is a Middle English allegorical narrative poem by William Langland

Piers Plowman (written c. 1370–90) or Visio Willelmi de Petro Ploughman (William's Vision of Piers Plowman) is a Middle English allegorical narrative poem by William Langland. It is written in unrhymed, alliterative verse divided into sections called passus (Latin for "step").

The Vision of Piers Plowman is a Christian allegory and a deeply serious, heart-felt as well as intellectual on. Alliterative verse forms have strict rules, just as iambic metres do and it takes considerable skill to compose in them.

The Vision of Piers Plowman is a Christian allegory and a deeply serious, heart-felt as well as intellectual one. Langland uses the older Alliterative verse style rather than adopting the new-fangled rhyming, iambic schemes as Chaucer di. The seriousness and evident profound feeling behind the poem stands in stark contrast to the Canterbury Tales (insofar as I've read them) even though there are some themes in common.

A Modern Verse Translation. William Langland When the poem was first printed, it was given the overall Latin title Liber de Petro Plowman or Book of Peter the Plowman, and it was divided into tw. . Translated by Peter Sutton. Piers Plowman revolves around the narrator’s quest for how to live a good Christian life that combines practical activity with spiritual reflection. When the poem was first printed, it was given the overall Latin title Liber de Petro Plowman or Book of Peter the Plowman, and it was divided into two sections, the Vision of Piers the Plowman, and the Life of Do-well, Do-better and Do-best.

His famous Vision Concerning Piers Plowman exhibits a moral .

His famous Vision Concerning Piers Plowman exhibits a moral earnestness and energy which is brightened by his vivid glimpses of the lives of the poorest classes of 14th century England. Piers Plowman is an allegorical moral and social satire, written as a "vision" of the common medieval type. The poet falls asleep in the Malvern Hills and dreams that in a wilderness he comes upon the tower of Truth (God) set on a hill, with the dungeon of Wrong (the Devil) in the deep valley below, and a "fair field full of folk" (the world of living men) between them. And some chose trade they fared the better, As it seemeth to our sight that such men thrive.
