Piers Plowman. (A.V.C.Schmidt),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Piers Plowman A New Translation of the B-text (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
The Vision of Piers Plowman is a marvellous work. It is filled with pictures of mediaeval life in which human behave exactly as they do today. It has beautiful language and moral arguments that still remain open in the 21st Century. The Schmidt translation (prose) is the clearest I have found, bringing the text to life in a colloquial manner and including excellent notes.
