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").

Piers Plowman is thus assimilated to scriptural tradition. In varying degrees this perspective governs all "exegetical" criticism of the poem. Penn Szittya in The Antifraternal Tradition in Medieval Literature glosses a number of Langland's quotations by reference to the meanings they had accumulated in polemical writings against the friars; 12 and Wendy Scase provides a virtual lexicon of such meanings in "Piers Plowman" and the New Anticlericalism.
