Introducing The Canterbury Tales :
On Pilgrimage with Geoffrey Chaucer
Dr Laura Varnam is known at the Festival as a du Maurier expert but in her day job she teaches Medieval Literature at University College, Oxford.
Last year Laura introduced festival-goers to the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf and this year Laura will tell some of the fascinating stories from Geoffrey Chaucer’s fourteenth-century story collection, The Canterbury Tales.
We will hear about the pilgrim storytellers and their tales, from the larger-than-life Wife of Bath to the chivalrous Knight, from bawdy entertainment to epic romance, and everything in between!
Laura will also introduce Chaucer’s life, language, and literary heritage, and why his works are still relevant in the twenty-first century.
Sponsored by The Jamaica Inn.
