Book Description

June 6 2007 962634380X 978-9626343807 Abridged edition
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"...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Decameron (Naxos cd) Jan. 10 2009
By David Suda - Published on Amazon.com
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!
