Other online readings, publicly available:

  • Plot outline of The Faerie Queene, book 1
  • Outline of Piers Plowman. An outline of the B text that I made while studying for my field exams in graduate school. The HTML version of this document was generated by MS Word (hence its somewhat monotonous use of arabic numerals for every outline level). For printing or editing, you can also download a somewhat prettier version of this document in Rich Text Format (RTF).
