Not much is known about William Langland, the supposed author of Piers Plowman. In fact, even his name is just a speculation, hailing from passus XV, line 152 of Piers Plowman: ‘I have lived in land,’ said I, ‘my name is Long Will. Many critics consider this line to be a play on the name William Langland, though it can’t be considered solid proof. Langland was probably born around 1325 and died sometime after 1388.

Among English poems, three narratives, Piers Plowman, Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained are exceptional in.Very few poets except the authors of the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament have tried to write in any extended way about God.

Among English poems, three narratives, Piers Plowman, Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained are exceptional in their extensive, explicit poetry about god and their direct concern with the mysteries of Biblical faith. This work looks at Piers Plowman, confronting not only the alterity of culture resulting from a lapse of almost 700 years, but also the more profound alterity of the subject matter.

Benson's point is that the poem 'is less extreme and idiosyncratic than often thought'; he says 'there is no need to look for analogues in such heretical and persecuted quarters' as Lollardy (p. 139)

Piers Plowman, a Middle English poem by William Langland, is a quest that occurs within dream visions that satirize secular and religious figures corrupted by greed. The poem is divided into sections called passus, Latin for step (passus is singular and passi is plural) and means a stage, or the stages, of a journey. Vision 1. Prologue: Will falls asleep and has a dream where on one side he sees a tower belonging to Truth/God/Heaven, and a valley with a large dungeon representing Hell. Some refuse to work, and Hunger punishes them until they do. Once Hunger has been satisfied, the people return to being idle.

A Game of Heuene is a stylistic study of word play in the B-version of the Middle English narrative poem, Piers Plowman. In a close reading of Passus I, IX, XI, and XVIII, Davlin shows the frequency of word play and its effectiveness in multiplying meaning, developing themes, and suggesting relationships. Like other notorious `shifting, unstable' elements of style in Piers Plowman, its word play is enigmatic and demands of the reader intense attention and play of mind. Davlin argues that such demands are a way of involving the reader in the text as `a game of heuene' (Langland's phrase for language, IX, 104), which teaches how to read experience as well as words in order to find Treuthe. The difficult form of Piers Plowman,is thus mimetic of its protagonist's struggle to experience Treuthe, and also ludic, requiring the reader to share aesthetically in Will's experience by playing the `game of heuene', learning `kyndeli to knowe —Treuthe'through deciphering its enigmas. A Game of Heuene advocates and demonstrates close reading with attention to word play, and should be useful to beginning students of Piers Plowmanas well as to scholars; its explication opens the meaning of particular passages and proposes a new understanding of the meaning of the entire structure and style of the poem .
