The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer is the background theme for A Canterbury Tale.



Scholars of Geoffrey Chaucer have identified the 17th of April in 1387 as the start date of the fictional journey to Canterbury. Also, in 1397, Chaucer first told The Canterbury Tales while he was at the court of Richard II.

THE TWO GEOFFREYS

In A Canterbury Tale, Powell & Pressburger use the character of Geoffrey (Alison Smith's well bred fiancé) as an allusion to Geoffrey Chaucer. We see the pastoral and the literary blending together to thematically unite England's working class with the elite. Although Geoffrey's father initially opposed his son's relationship with a common shop girl, he changed his mind and decided to wait for Alison to arrive in Canterbury so he could reunite them. Through the intermediary figure of Geoffrey as a symbol of the historical author Geoffrey Chaucer, class conscious England unites in shared affection for its foundational poet.



Gerik Schjelderup played Geoffrey Chaucer in A Canterbury Tale.
