This work-a parallel-text edition that contains all four versions of Piers Plowman-constitutes a major enterprise of textual scholarship and will provide for students of Langland a modern equivalent to Skeat's standard edition of 1886. This revised and corrected three-volume set is specifically designed to facilitate study of the parallel text (Volume 1) alongside both the textual notes (Volume 2, part 1) and the commentary/glossary (Volume 2, part 2), and is intended to make the entire edition available to as many students of Langland as possible.

Volume II, Part 1. Introduction and Textual Notes Editorial Preface Acknowledgements Abbreviations Foreword A. Introduction I. The Manuscripts of Piers Plowman II. The Editorial Tradition of Piers Plowman III. The Text of the A, B, C and Z Versions IV. Editing the Text V. The Poem in Time B. Textual Notes

A. V. C. Schmidt was a Fellow at Balliol College, University of Oxford from 1972 until his retirement in 2011, and specializes in Piers Plowman and Chaucer.
