The Decameron,

The Decameron, also called Prince Galehaut, is a 14th-century medieval allegory by Giovanni Boccaccio, told as a frame story encompassing 100 tales by ten young people. The book's primary title exemplifies Boccaccio's fondness for Greek philology: Decameron combines two Greek words, Greek: dÈka (""ten"") and (Greek: hemÈra (""day""), to form a term that means ""ten-day event"". Ten days is the time period in which the characters of the frame story tell their tales.

  • ""In the summer of 1348, with the plague ravaging Florence, ten young men and women take refuge in the countryside, where they entertain themselves with tales of love, death, and corruption, featuring a host of characters, from lascivious clergymen and mad kings to devious lovers and false miracle-makers. Named after the Greek for "ten days," Boccaccio's book of stories draws on ancient mythology, contemporary history, and everyday life, and has influenced the work of myriad writers who came after him. J. G. Nichols's new translation, faithful to the original but rendered in eminently readable modern English, captures the timeless humor of one of the great classics of European literature. A brilliant new translation of the work that Herman Hesse called 'the first great masterpiece of European storytelling.'"--Publisher's website."
  • "Set against the background of the Black Death of 1348, the hundred linked tales are peopled by nobles, knights, abbots, nuns, doctors, lawyers, philosophers, students, artists, tradesmen, troubadours, peasants, pilgrims, servants, spendthrifts, thieves, parasites, gluttons, gamblers - and lovers, both faithful and faithless. Unabashedly earthy in its sensuality, The Decameron recaptures both the tragedies and comedies of life and is one of the greatest achievements in the history of literature--from Cover."
  • "Boccace, avec Dante et Pétrarque, s'inscrit dans la trilogie des auteurs italiens du trecento. Les cent nouvelles du Décaméron, conçues après la peste qui avait ravagé Florence en 1348, offrent un miroir à la comédie humaine. Des oeuvres du début de la Renaissance italienne illustrent cette édition : peintures, fresques, coffres de mariage, dessins, bois gravés."
  • "È il 1348: mentre la peste infuria a Firenze, dieci giovani si rifugiano in campagna e per passare piacevolmente il tempo si raccontano per dieci giornate una novella ciascuno. Questa la nota "cornice" che racchiude la più celebre raccolta di novelle della letteratura europea: un capolavoro che ancora affascina per la pluralità dei toni, per la capacità di dipingere l'infinita varietà della vita. Per i settecento anni dalla nascita di Boccaccio, i massimi esperti italiani della sua opera danno vita a un'edizione innovativa, fondante di una nuova tradizione interpretativa, in cui il massimo rigore filologico è associato a una inedita apertura verso i lettori d'oggi. Il nuovo testo critico stabilito da Maurizio Fiorilla è preceduto dalla rigorosa introduzione di Amedeo Quondam, cui si deve anche il ricco apparato di note; le introduzioni alle singole giornate di Giancarlo Alfano approfondiscono i rapporti che legano tra loro le novelle."
  • "Uit Florence gevlucht wegens een pestepidemie besluiten tien jongelieden elkaar als afleiding honderd verhalen te vertellen, waar een groot aantal menselijke typen in voorkomen."
