Book Description

June 6 2007 Classic Literature with Classical Music
Here are 16 tales from one of the great works of the Middle Ages. Ten young people have fled for a while the terrible effects of the Black Death in Florence and, in an idyllic setting, tell a series of brilliant stories, by turns humorous, bawdy, tragic and provocative. This celebration of physical and sexual vitality is Boccaccio's answer to the sublime other-worldliness of Dante's "Divine Comdey"...

* Seven and a half centuries after they were written, the outrageous bawdiness of these tales, coupled with their delicate language, will make even the grumpiest smile. The Oldie --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Unabridged Nov. 23 2011
Format:Audio CD
This audiobook is presented on amazon as "unabridged." But it's very heavily abridged. The Decameron consists of 100 stories. Only 11 stories are provided on the two audio cds. According to the cd case, those 11 stories are "complete and unabridged," which is a very different and lesser thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Decameron (Naxos cd) Jan. 10 2009
By David Suda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Consistent with the superlative audio productions that Naxos provides, this reading of selections from Boccaccio's Decameron is outstanding. The actors are gifted professionals, all of whom are sensitive to the demands of the text. This recording is a joy to hear. Particularly when one recalls that the text is over 700 years old, then one ought to appreciate that human issues are not so very different today. Boccaccio wrote these tales with grace, humor, and humility. These are tales for the ages, rendered elegantly by the cast on this recording. This is a must for the 21st century listener!
