The Decameron
« Reply #1 on: Feb:25:2019 »

Author: Giovanni Boccaccio / Year: 1313-1375  / Genre:Short Stories

The Decameron (c.1351) is an entertaining series of one hundred stories written in the wake of the Black Death. The stories are told in a country villa outside the city of Florence by ten young noble men and women who are seeking to escape the ravages of the plague. Boccaccio's skill as a dramatist is masterfully displayed in these vivid portraits of people from all stations in life, with plots that revel in a bewildering variety of human reactions.
