Title Background

Jack Upland and a Fishy Friar.

Jack Upland and a Fishy Friar.

Discusses Jack Upland, Friar Daw’s Reply, and Upland’s Rejoinder as descendants of PPl in their satiric criticism of friars and treatment of the topics of social justice and the common profit; argues that Daw’s Reply, using the Langlandian technique of ironic self-exposure, contributes, rather than offers a convincing rebuttal, to the satire of the friars.
