This book differs from most previous studies of the Pearl poet by treating all of his works as a whole. Prior's purpose is to identify the underlying poetics of this major body of English poetry. Drawing on both the visual imagery of medieval art (the study includes 18 full-page illustrations) and the verbal imagery of the Bible and other literary sources, Prior shows how the poet's ""fayre formez"" are the result of a coherent and self-conscious view of the artist's craft.
