The Vision of Piers Plowman by William Langland
A weary wanderer falls asleep and dreams of a tower and a deep dungeon, and in between the whole of humanity pursuing its business and pleasure...But his dream becomes a profound vision of redemption, in which the corruptions and injustices that occur daily are laid open with passionate truthfulness in poetry that combines vigorous realism and probing argument with moments of epic sublimity and lyrical beauty.
