Reader's note

Add some truly classic literature to your bookshelf with this bright and bold orange Penguin! In the last century, scholars and historians read 'Piers Plowman' as a vivid social commentary, and found it full of rich, Hogarthian scenes of fourteenth century life. He was an observer and reflector of no common powers. Where the characters though imaginary, are persons and not personifications, he paints with all the truth and distinctness of a true master. Langland was a cleric, of whom no contemporary record exists, and whose life nothing is known for certain. As such, this book is an obscure vintage gem that deserves a very special place within any home library.
