William Langland,  assumed to be the author of Piers Ploughman, is one of the first poets in English as opposed to Anglo-Saxon, though his heavy use of alliteration recalls Beowulf and Anglo-Saxon poetry. This poem condenses some of his concerns as expressed in Piers Ploughman,social unrest, a divided Church, a sense of decline and dissolution in the world generally. But he finds consolation in the gift of language, even such a mongrel as yet unpolished one as English.
Poems often suggest interpretations of other poems. Here quotations or allusions to words in Robert Browning's 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin' tell their own story. Poem on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88MyIJC6HJA
This short story was written by my son Joseph when a 15-year-old student doing an assignment for his English class.
Few figures have haunted the works of poets and writers so pervasively as that of Ahasuerus the Wandering Jew. This poem was broadcast in the weekly series 'Thank Goodness it's Friday' by Kol Israel in July 1980.
