This book examines the literary and intellectual relationships between "Piers Plowman" and "The Faerie Queene". It links these two rich and problematical poems by showing their development from a common religious and artistic matrix and by assessing their roles in the evolution of allegory. "A valuable contibution to our understanding of the medieval vernacular literature." --Robert W. Ackerman
