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: déka ( ten ) and (Greek: hēméra ( 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. Historical Romance Romance Classics.

Decameron, collection of tales by Giovanni Boccaccio, probably composed between 1349 and 1353. The work is regarded as a masterpiece of classical Italian prose. The Decameron comprises a group of stories united by a frame story. As the frame narrative opens, 10 young people (seven women and three men) flee plague-stricken Florence to a delightful villa in nearby Fiesole. Each rules for a day and sets stipulations for the daily tales to be told by all participants, resulting in a collection of 100 pieces.

THE DECAMERON GIOVANNI BOCCACCIO was born in 1313, either in Florence or Certaldo, a town in Florentine territory. This was equally unsuccessful, and after a few years Boccaccio gave up his legal studies and devoted his time to literature and scholarship. At this period Naples, under King Robert of Anjou, was one of the major intellectual and cultural centres in Europe. To judge from references in his Latin epistles, Boccaccio considered his sojourn in Naples as the happiest period in his life. For political and economic reasons he was forced to return to Florence in 1341.

  • This is a special book, not only because it comes from the 14th century, but because the stories are so unique and erudite. This is a fixture in the literary lexicon for a good reason, simply because it's a great read for someone interested in instructive stories. While the setting is a group of socialites intent on avoiding the plague, the stories themselves mention the plague very little. Boccaccio, while sometimes coy, avoided conformity and pedantry through his skeptical views and often features a skeptical hero or two in his 100 stories. This is a great translation, retaining the continental flavor.

  • I read this in college many years ago, and I love it even more now.

  • Excellent ! It took me 50 years to read it for the second time and enjoyed it even more. I,m reading volume II at the present time.

  • I was assigned portions of this classic as part of an English class and enjoyed what we read so much that I decided to read the whole thing. I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I liked what I did read and look forward to reading the rest.

  • I was in Tuscany and therefore it felt appropriate to read this book there. I read it when young, I think than I enjoyed it much more! The language is dated and so are the " adventures and sexual insinuations". I did not read the volume 2, one was enough to remind myself of the classic. Pleasant enough though.

  • Read it when I was in High School. I still enjoyed reading it after almost 2 decades!!! very, very funny.

  • I found it too wordy and slow-paced. Maybe I'll try it again sometime, but it's not on my priority list.

  • Amazing. writing.
