The major edition of the three versions of Piers Plowman which the Athlone Press is in the process of publishing and of which Professor Kane is the general editor was not planned to include discussion of the authorship of the poem. The editors were agreed at the outset in believing that no real case for multiple authorship had been established in the course of the debate initiated by J.M. Manley in 1906, and they felt that a majority of Middle English scholars would support this view. They were satisfied that the hypothesis of single authorship was the best hypothesis to account for all aspec

The Piers Plowman glossary : Will's visions of Piers Plowman, Do-Well, Do-Better and Do-Best : a glossary of the English vocabulary of the A, B, and C versions as presented in the Athlone editions by George Kane( Book )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
"The first of its kind since Sir Walter Skeat's pioneering Glossarial Index of 1886, this glossary takes full account of the intervening advances in both Middle English lexicography and Piers Plowman scholarship. Each definition is supported by reference to instances in each of the forms where the word occurs. Where this applies they were chosen with an eye to the dialectal and morphological differences in the three texts, and to the rhetorically sophisticated grammar of the poet's style. The glossary, moreover, gives full attention to the remoteness of many elements in the poem's content from modern culture and its values."--Jacket
