520    Addressing the history of the production and reception of 
       the great medieval poem, Piers Plowman, Lawrence Warner 
       reveals the many ways in which scholars, editors and 
       critics over the centuries created their own speculative 
       narratives about the poem, which gradually came to be 
       regarded as factually true. Warner begins by considering 
       the possibility that Langland wrote a romance about a 
       werewolf and bear-suited lovers, and he goes on to explore
       the methods of the poem's localization, and medieval 
       readers' particular interest in its Latinity. Warner shows
       that the 'Protestant Piers' was a reaction against the 
       poem's oral mode of transmission, reveals the extensive 
       18th-century textual scholarship on the poem by figures 
       including the maligned Chaucer editor John Urry, and 
       contextualizes its first modernization by a literary 
       forger inspired by the 1790s Shakespeare controversies. 
       This lively account of Piers Plowman challenges the way 
       the poem has traditionally been read and understood. This 
       title was made Open Access by libraries from around the
