Abstract

The city of Canterbury is prominently known for its historical attributes on the religious front of Christianity for the UK and the birthplace of the Geoffrey Chaucer’s work, The Canterbury Tales. It is common knowledge that the Tales is a collection of stories from thirty-two characters which each (arguably) include an insight into the issues within the Pilgrim society alongside Chaucer’s opinions of general norms through the use of numerous storytellers. This Master’s by practise-based research focuses on three of the twenty-four tales and brings them into the modern era in order to analyse the issues discussed in Chaucer’s work to determine if the same issues can be applied to modern society; to challenge these problems or discover if they still remain six hundred years later, via the format of a filmed ethnographic documentary series, titled ‘The Tales of Canterbury-The modern edition’. This MA will also analyse the hardships and the positive components of the one-person documentary crew.
