Good poor people

My essay comparing American political discourse around poverty to Piers Plowman appears in the Times Literary Supplement. I’d like to record my gratitude to Emily Steiner, whose book Reading “Piers Plowman” taught me about the poet’s complex attitudes toward poverty, and Holly Wood, whose critiques of class politics are an inspiration.
