Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The medieval masterpiece, set against the backdrop of the Black Death of 1348, is now available in this authoritative English-language translation. The 100 linked tales in Boccaccio's masterpiece are peopled by nobles, knights, nuns, doctors, lovers--all of whom are both faithful and faithless. Unabashedly earthy in its sensuality, "The Decameron" captures both the tragedies and comedies of life. Original.

Synopsis:

Set against the background of the Black Death of 1348, the hundred linked tales in Boccaccio's masterpiece are peopled by nobles, knights, nuns, doctors, lawyers, students, artists, peasants, pilgrims, servants, spendthrifts, thieves, gamblers, police-and lovers, both faithful and faithless.
