viii + 208 pp. Index. Index of manuscripts and works cited, bw illus. "Written while philosophers were questioning whether is was possible to know anything about God, Piers Plowman is a poem entirely about God, not in the abstract, and not in the next life, but as known by faith and wisdom in this world. ....(this book) is a study of 'the place of God' in this poem. (it) is partly formalist study of locational and analogical language, which 'places' God. But this is also an historicist study, since the 'place of God' in Piers Plowman is best understood, not in isolation, but in the context of the poem's textual environment.'" Dark green hard boards with gilt ruling have a small white spot on one corner, slight remains of a price sticker at bottom, one small bump on the spine, price sticker mark on first fly, otherwise as unread.; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
