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.
