Title Background

Dream Vision

Dream Vision

Briefly charts this “shifting complex of generic feaures and modes” from Bible to its gradual assemblage into a distinct literary genre in the later Middle Ages, concluding with Skelton. PPl is “the greatest of all English works seeking to come to terms with the implications of dream vision for political and social commentary, literary creation, and religious truth.”
