Piers Plowman : The Canon Inside Out #2

Our investigation of the history of English poetry continues Sunday, October 28 with "Piers Plowman" by William Langland, co-presented by John Leonard Brunie and David Brazil. Everyone seemed to enjoy the alliterative action of "Beowulf" so much last time, we thought we'd keep the hits coming with a great Middle English poem traditionally associated with Lollardy and the Peasants Revolt of 1381. (And you thought Oakland invented insurrection!) We'll meet Sunday, October 28, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Long Haul Infoshop at 3124 Shattuck Ave in Berkeley (nearest BART is Ashby). No knowledge of English literature or poetry is required to join our meeting, and you don't even need to have read "Piers Plowman," although we'd love it if you did ! The poem exists in three texts, "A," "B," & "C" -- we'll be looking mostly at the Prologue of the B-Text, if you want to prepare. Please join us ! Bring a friend !
