The work of an obscure fourteenth-century cleric, Piers the Ploughman is concerned with the largest of all poetic themes, the meaning of man's life in relation to his ultimate destiny. This spiritual allegory is set against a colourful background of teeming medieval life between the 'Tower of Truth' and the 'Dungeon of Falsehood'.
