Scrope's reward was the earldom of Wiltshire the only county in which he had as yet estates and a share of the confiscations. One of the strategies of the poem is the allegorical use of animal imagery, often based on the liveries or coats of arms of the major figures.

    The fact that part of the inheritance wrongfully withheld from him was in Wiltshire's possession must have given Henry a personal grudge against him. The first two chapters are rich and convey current research in the field well, and the last two chapters contain insightful readings of the Piers Plowman tradition. Richard the Redeles ca.

The article assembles evidence of these findings, and includes previously unpublished material from episcopal registers transcribed and translated by Lesley Boatwright. Dent, I hope that you will. They both presume to advise a king, include satirical critiques, and imitate Piers Plowman, by far the most important source for both poems.

It is unlikely that he was university-educated, and he seems not to have been a member of the clergy, for his political advice, though intended for Christian kings, is more practical than theoretically moral: The welfare of the commonwealth depends on mature, considered, wise counsel, and the king must surround himself with dependable, experienced, counselors—and listen to them.

It is not certain whether any more of Langland's work has survived. The decoration of the register also reflects the ambitious building activities in Wells Cathedral at this time, where the bishop had a large chantry chapel erected in the cloisters to accommodate his own tomb, Hugh Sugar built his own chantry in the nave, and the crossing was adorned with a newly fashionable fan vault.

Piers the Plowman's Creed and Richard Redeless, two shorter poems that were previously attributed to Langland, are now believed to have been written by others. Joan then married Robert Domenyk by whom she had another daughter, Alice, the co-heiress.

Langland is believed to have lived from about to It is filled with dramatic tales of secret rooms, brave abolitionists, and midnight journeys.

The atmosphere is summed up in a contemporary account by Thomas Walsingham, who made this memorable assessment of Richard's courtiers: They were knights of Venus rather than knights of Bellona, more valiant in the bedchamber than on the field, armed with words rather than weapons, prompt in speaking but slow in performing the acts of war.

The premise of the poem is that, first, Richard at age 11 was too immature to have been thrust into the royal office, and that, second, he failed because of his lack of wise counsel from the poorly prepared upstart favorites with whom he surrounded himself. To be able to write about Samuel's mother, I stood on a street corner in Old Washington, Kentucky, where slaves were once auctioned.

However, free African Americans played an equally important role. He was a convicted adulterer. And is there a tumbledown farmhouse somewhere in Kentucky with an old burying-ground for slaves nearby?

Paradoxically, it seems unable to elucidate the texture of medieval popular devotion or identify the sources of its pleasure, then or now. But this latter thought pertains to one that maturity demonstrates as able to choose, not to a boy, since his blame is smaller thenTHE VISION OF WILLIAM CONCERNING PIERS THE PLOWMAN: IN THREE PARALLEL TEXTS, TOGETHER WITH RICHARD THE REDELESS - 2 Volumes by LANGLAND, WILLIAM & WALTER W.
