The fifty-plus manuscripts of Piers Plowman have continually posed a puzzle to students. This e-book is an account of the variations of the poem that experience seemed in view that 1550, whilst it was once first released via the protestant reformer Robert Crowley. It examines the conditions within which the variants have been produced, the lives and highbrow motivations of the editors, and the connection among one variation and the subsequent. It makes use of a variety of released and unpublished fabric to make clear makes an attempt to crack one of many significant editorial conundrums in medieval experiences.
