I am working with Heuristic Media on an iPad app edition of The Canterbury Tales.
We are hoping to produce an extraordinary Canterbury Tales App that will allow students to dig deep into one of the greatest works of English Literature. It will inspire readers to relive the pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral and help them to navigate the poems’ multiple narratives, setting them all within their historical, literary and geographical context.
The app will be structured around an interactive and easily navigable text of The Canterbury Tales, with parallel manuscripts and translations. Illustrations, maps, glosses, commentary, talking heads and audio recordings will be accessible at one touch. There will also be article pieces on pilgrimage, medieval travel, food, clothes, humour, music and more.
