Winner and Waster

Brief survey of form; dating range (questioning the traditional date of 1352-53 based on internal markers); dependence of substance on the Aristotelian conceptual model of economic modalities; and affinities to PPl, including “the poet’s willingness to use a variety of traditional voices and his mastery of rhetorical dispute [which] leave the reader with a vivid sense of problems raised, rather than an authoritative solution.”


Szarmach, et al., Medieval England. 805.
