    The Yearbook of Langland Studies is the sole journal devoted to Piers Plowman studies. Since 1987, YLS has significantly shaped the expanding critical attention to the poem and its contexts. Each volume - including essays, debate, reviews, and annual annotated bibliography - offers access to the most significant and up-to-date scholarship on the poem and its literary, historical, codicological, and critical contexts.
