Ellis follows the medieval pilgrim route from London to Canterbury in the proscribed six traditional days. His knowlege of history and Chaucer is impressive and adds to his tale. However, he subustitutes his own [considerable] spiritiality for the religious faith that motivates pilgrims and rather misses the meaning of the pilgrimage.
