Canterbury Tales is first major literary work developed as an app

International Edu News

Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales is the first major literary work, in any language, to be developed into a web and mobile phone app with original scholarship, due to a new project by academics at UCL, the University of Saskatchewan (USask), and The National Library of Wales.

The free app is the first edition in a planned series. The app features a 45-minute audio performance of the General Prologue of the Tales—the masterpiece work by the most important English writer before Shakespeare—along with the digitized original manuscript. While listening to the reading, users have access to supporting content such as a translation in modern English, commentary, notes, and vocabulary explaining Middle English words used by Chaucer.

The app can be found by searching “General Prologue” in PlayStore or in the App Store. It can also be accessed online: www.sd-editions.com/CantApp/GP. The project was supported by USask and by the federal Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
