Piers Plowman Diversity, Diversity, and the Medieval Political Aesthetic.

This essay argues that later medieval English poetry, and PPl in particular, developed strains of political thought that originated with Continental legal scholars. More specifically, L, in concert with other fourteenth-century alliterative poets, helped shape political thought about diversity, an ‘unfinished’ project of earlier Continental philosophers and jurists, through radical experiments in poetic form.
