Piers Plowman : A Parallel-Text Edition
of the A, B, C and Z Versions : Text
by William Langland, A.V.C. Schmidt (Editor)
Published by Longman Group United Kingdom, January 1995
The Schmidt edition is likely to become... the
preeminent parallel edition of Piers.... The texts
are valuable and handsomely produced after
years of careful scholarship. Readers of Piers
Plowman will be grateful for Schmidt's efforts,
which future discussion is likely to invoke as
often as Skeat's."

(Piers Plowman Studies, No 9)
by Gillian Rudd
Boydell & Brewer, March 1994
"Gillian Rudd's study of language, learning, and the forms
of knowledge and authority in Piers and how they are all
intimately related, are intricately questioning one another,
and are never quite resolved." (Gregory Roper)

by Barbara A. Johnson

"Centering her discussion on two historical "ways
of reading" - which she calls the Protestant and the

Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress."
