Canterbury-west-Winter-Highsmith

Geoffrey Chaucer, the Father of English Literature, was writing in the Fourteenth Century but his works are still highly accessible, enjoyable and relevant today. I am pioneering new ways of engaging with his extraordinary poetry.

2013 PILGRIMAGE. April 2013. The second modern literary pilgrimage in the footsteps of Chaucer’s pilgrims.

2012 PILGRIMAGE. April 2012. I organised the first ever recreation of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales: a group of modern storytellers walked 65 miles from London to Canterbury.

In December 2013, my recreations of the Canterbury Tales were featured in the BBC2 series, Pilgrimage with Simon Reeve.

APP. I am working with Heuristic Media on an interactive app edition of The Canterbury Tales for students.

LECTURE. I am available to talk to schools and colleges about Chaucer and the Canterbury Tales.
