PASSUS Most commonly associated with William Langland's medieval dream vision Piers Plowman, the passus is a portion of or a division within a literary work. Passus comes from the Latin word of the same spelling, meaning "step" or "pace." The use of the term in English literature first appeared in conjunction with Langland's work, and it is similar in style to that of the canto (a major division in a long poem), which enjoys a wider usage among early English poets.
