The Chaucer in Canterbury Sculpture Project
The Canterbury Commemoration Society has commissioned a sculpture commemorating the life of Geoffrey Chaucer and his link with Canterbury, celebrating the author’s colossal genius and popularity which fixed the form of our language today. The sculpture, in bronze, is made up of a statue of Chaucer, and a plinth, whose surface depicts the pilgrims described in The Canterbury Tales. The sculpture will be placed on the corner of the High Street and Best Lane, opposite the Eastbridge Hospital, and near to the Beaney Library, Art Gallery and Museum.
