Imaginative Prophecy in the B-text of Piers Plowman
DS Brewer, 1993 - 158 pages
Exploration of the Arabic psychological theory underlying Piers Plowmanand the interpretive insights this offers.
The psychology underlying Passus 8-20 of Piers Plowmanremains unexplored in its entirety, despite single articles on separate psychological personifications. Professor Kaulbach aims to remedy this huge gap in our understanding of Langland's poem, by adducing a psychology which not only illuminates previously mysterious relations between psychological actants, but also reveals that many apparently non-psychological figures (Piers Plowman, for example) are best explained by reference to psychological theory.
