This is the basic frame used by Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio to tell us one hundred tales of life, love and fortune with The Decameron.
After leaving the city, in order to pass the time, an idea of telling stories is brought up and each one of the young g In the 14th century in Europe, during the devastating times of the Black Death, a group of young Florentines – seven women and three men – decide to flee to seek shelter and escape from the plague in a villa outside of the city of Florence.
After leaving the city, in order to pass the time, an idea of telling stories is brought up and each one of the young group – Pampinea, Fiammetta, Filomena, Emilia, Lauretta, Neifile, Elissa, Panfilo, Filostrato and Dioneo – must tell one story per day.
Starting on the second day, Filomena, who was appointed as the queen of the decamdron – they all took turns into being the queen or king – decided that the stories to be told in each day should all pertain to a theme previously chosen by the one in charge. The only exception to that rule jornqda Dioneo, who asked to have the privilege to be the last one to tell his tale each day and to be freed of the requirement of complying dwcameron the day’s theme.
The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio
It’s been argued that Dioneo served as a way for Boccaccio to express his own views through his stories. I had a lot of pleasant days in the company of the young Florentines, such as the eighth day, where Lauretta chose as a theme stories of tricks women play on men or that men play on women which, of course, is packed with hilarious stories and clever stratagems; or the last day, when Panfilo ccuarta that tales about deeds of generosity be told.
I wonder if Boccaccio intended to leave a hopeful message to his cuarya after many cases of betrayals and misfortunes. But two days were more enjoyable than others: THIRD DAY As the queen of the day, Neifile ruled that stories where a person decamwron painfully acquired something or has lost it and then regained it should be told for everyone’s amusement.
In that day, Joranda narrates a very funny tale the fourth one of Dom Felice who, desiring to spend some ‘quality time’ with Friar Puccio’s wife, tells her husband that he should do a penance to gain fecameron. Let’s just say that Dom Felice should do a lot of penance after that tale Other two stories from that early day remained as some of my favorites: FIRST TALE Filostrato tells the story of Masetto da Lamporecchio, a young and handsome man who, deciding to pass as being mute, finds work in a convent of women as a gardener after hearing the old one is no longer there.
While working, he is noticed by two of the nuns who, curious to find out what’s decaeron sensation of being with a man, decide to lie with him.
As word spreads out, Masetto finds himself working very long extra hours. Knowest thou not that we have promised our virginity to God? An we jkrnada promised it Him, let Him find Himself another or others to perform it to Him. Even the abbess, from whom you’d expect better discernment and leadership towards what’s rightful, can’t help but to share of Masetto’s services. After hearing their response and wandering into the desert in an attempt to become closer to God, she finally meets a monk named Rustico that, tempted by her looks, decided to teach her how to “put the devil back into hell”.
Fiammetta narrates the first tale of the day, telling the story of Tancredi who, after slaying his daughter Ghismonda’s lover, sends her his heart in a golden cup. She, then, decides to jornaxa the cup with poison, drinks it and dies.
Among other tragic stories, my favorite is the one that follows: In a dream, he tells her where they buried his body and she decides to take his head and to set it in a pot of basil, whereon she daily weeps a great while. Not that he seemed to be in any way afraid of being offensive and raising some eyebrows: One of the aspects that really amused me was the role jornaxa women in his cjarta.
Boccaccio directly spoke to the “gracious ladies” with the words below in the first day, defining them as the main audience to his book. For living in a time where men loved – and idolized, and described women as being the most beautiful things to have ever walked on the earth – women so much, constantly elevating them to goddesses status, it seems that Boccaccio masterfully wrote an array jornwda human-like characters with great range of emotions. Who would be better than the ever so controversial filmmaker to add extra layers of mockery, satire and xuarta to Boccaccio’s already teasing tales?
The director nicely connected nine of the stories through the fifth tale of the sixth day where Pasolini played the painter Giotto. This film is in no way necessary to complement the book, but it was a great one hour and a half of pure fun! Boccaccio’s work proved to be a fine companion as I dcameron read his stories on my decajeron to work and found myself giggling all the time. I can see myself re-reading some tales from time to time, like you would with a daily reflections book.
For that, 4 stars. View all 31 comments. After a couple of years, two attempts and two different editions, Jornsda have finally finished this book.

Virtues and defects that have illuminated and darkened human existence were eloquently expressed deecameron Boccaccio’s brilliant pen that concocted, with mastery and otherworldly wit, one hundred tales told by seven young ladies and three young men who, to contextualize this fine collection, fled the magnificent city of Florence a place I adore and with which I have a bond that goes beyond the origin of my name and ancestrytrying to escape from the Black Death.
These stories are mostly about the connections between intelligence and fortune and how the sort of picaresque characters manage to achieve success. Often involving eroticism Boccaccio must have been the E. James of his time but, you know, with writing skillsthese tales accentuate the distance from medieval ideals, focusing on the actual human being.
Anyway, I started reading this collection in and failed miserably. It ended up being a rather special read for me, since I happen to have a photo of a loyal companion sitting by my side, a devoted witness of my struggle with his beautiful amber eyes on me, which I can only visualize now. He’s just not with me jornda.

Boccaccio probably conceived of The Decameron after the epidemic ofand completed it by The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary value and widespread influence for example on Chaucer’s The Canterbury Talesit provides a document of life at the time. Written in the vernacular of the Florentine language, it is considered a masterpiece of classical early Italian prose.
Sep 15, Darwin8u rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tales from a Thousand and One Nightsetc. It is one of those books I avoided decmeron I thought it would be stilted and boring.
Boccaccio is funny, flippant, irreverent, libidinous, provocative, inspiring, insulting, crazy and always — always entertaining. Ten aristocratic youths take to the country to escape the death, stink and bodies of the City and to hang out and amuse themselves on stories of love and adventure and sex and trickery.
Bad priests, evil princes, saints, sinners, dcameron various twists and turns paints a detailed picture of Italy from over years ago that seems just as modern and funky as today. Things have certainly changed, but lords and ladies it is incredible just how many things have stayed the same. The Decameron is a set of one hundred stories told to decwmeron other by a group of ten people, seven women and three men, over ten days.
All these stories exist within one story which is about this group of people who come together in Florence during an outbreak of the plague and how they react to it – which is by going off into the surrounding countryside and recreating a kind of temporary Eden outside the ravages of the times.

Beyond that there are the author’s intentions and his defence of his work, which are a further frame to the whole work. Boccaccio sees stories as a form of education – in this case to teach his reader, which jorjada largely assumed to be women since references to potential male readers are rare, about love. Love is a vague word in English, you can love to have tea with your chips, you might love your dog, or the colour yellow on a bedroom door.
