Took turns into being the ueen or king ecided that the stories to be told in each Untergrundorganisation (Deutschland): Weisse Rose, Bewegung 2. Juni, Rote Armee Fraktion, Weisse Rose Hamburg, Militante Gruppe day should all pertain to a theme previously chosen by the one in charge The only exception to that rule is Dioneo who asked to have the privilege to be the last one to tell his tale eachay and to be freed of the reuirement of complying to the Petualangan si Kembar Tiga (Müller hoch Drei) day s theme It s been argued that Dioneo served as a way for Boccaccio to express his own views through his storiesI had a lot of pleasantays in the company of the young Florentines such as the eighth ay where Lauretta chose As A Theme Stories Of Tricks Women a theme stories of tricks women on men or eighth ay where Lauretta chose as a theme stories of tricks women play on men or men play on women which of course is packed with hilarious stories and clever stratagems or the last Herr Müller, die verrückte Katze und Gott day when Panfilo asked that tales abouteeds of generosity be told I wonder if Boccaccio intended to leave a hopeful message to his readers after many cases of betrayals and misfortunesBut two The Manchester Man days were enjoyable than othersTHIRD DAYAs the ueen of theay Neifile ruled that stories where a person has painfully acuired something or has lost it and then regained it should be told for everyone s amusement In that The Charge day Panfilo narrates a very funny tale the fourth one of Dom Felice whoesiring to spend some uality time with Friar Puccio s wife tells her husband that he should Sind Tote immer leichenblass?

its origins beginning 
origins beginning Rabelais and Cervantes And so I The Trickster Makes A Match decided to close this year with The Decameron as a sort of introduction to the project in order to be able to better recognise the stylistic innovations introduced by those later writings Ion t think I would have read it otherwiseIn all honesty The Decameron offers very little to a modern reader It is very much of its time filled with witty references to local people and places which would have been easily understood and considered very clever at the time but which are or less lost on us today even with the benefit of footnotes Its themes are not universal It is concerned on the whole with trifling subjects witty turns of phrase and bawdy adventures While the stories can be entertaining they lack the sort of substance we have come to expect today But is The Silent Patient difficult to criticise the book on this basis given its place in history It was certainly outstanding in its own historical context as is apparent in its influence on literature for many hundreds of yearsOne thing I found notable about the book is its high cynicism its lack of reverence for political and religious figures as well as a lack of credence for religious ideas in general There is rarely a moral element to these stories which focus instead on material and corporeal concerns This is contrary to what I had expected given the position and authority of the Church at the timeThis is as good a time as any to note that the rating systemoesn t really hold for books like The Decameron and others I intend to read next year The Decameron For You Libretto Für Eine Oper Von Michael Berkeley doesn teserve anything less than five stars given its historical importance But I feel that automatically giving the maximum rating to the classics is not all that helpful an indication as to whether a book is still relevant and worth reading today So I will try find a balance in my rating between historical context and my own reaction as seems appropriate AmazingI m utterly flabbergasted by how good this is Forty years before The Canterbury Tales took England by storm a little tiny place called Italy was having a full blown RENAISSANCE So why the hell have I been avoiding all these fantastic pieces of art anyway Because they re in Italian For SHAME Fortunately this translation is fantastic and you know what It really holds up It has everything a public who wants to be entertained could ever Country of Ash: A Jewish Doctor in Poland, 1939-1945 desire A hundred short stories framed by nobles hiding out while the Black Plague ravages Europe eating frolicking and telling stories every night for ten nights Do you think a uarantine is a recipe forepression and The Children Of Witches disaster Muahahahahaha NO Let s just put it this way there s sex laughter trickery sex adultery sex theft cons sex and hilarious situations in these stories than you find in the entire works of Shakespeare And let s put this in perspective Chaucer and Shakespeare stole a TON of st from Boccaccio All of it funny and light and clever and wickedly perverseI always knew that literature in general is an incestuous lot but between these many classic tales of spouses pulling fast ones on each other or selfless tales of true love or steadfastness or tales of corruption greed and confidence games I m tempted to just corruption greed and confidence games I m tempted to just in the hat and say this guy has it ALLI know it ain t true I ve read enough Italians from than a millennia prior to put paid to that idea But STILL This is entertaining as hell And I thought Chaucer was a RIOT tooIt just goes to show never judge a book by its cover You might be losing out on some GREAT comedy Nothing is so indecent that it cannot be said to another person if the proper words are used to convey it Giovanni Boccaccio The DecameronLike The Canterbury Tales The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy Gentleman The Arabian Nights Tales from a Thousand and One Nights etc The Decameron is an early masterpiece of literature It is one of those books I avoided because I thought it would be stilted and boring Hells NASTY Bells was I wrong Boccaccio is funny flippant irreverent libidinous provocative inspiring insulting crazy and always always entertaining 100 stories told The Trail of the Wild Rose during the the summer of 1348 as the Black Death is ravaging Florence and Europe Ten aristocratic youths take to the country to escape thee. The Decameron c1351 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. Ath stink and bodies of the City and to hang out and amuse themselves on stories of love and adventure and sex and trickery Bad priests hang out and amuse themselves on stories of love and adventure and sex and trickery Bad priests princes saints sinners and various twists and turns paints a The Earth From The Air 365 Days detailed picture of Italy from over 660 years ago that seems just as modern and funky as today Things have certainly changed but lords and ladies it is incredible just how many things have stayed the same The Decameron is a set of one hundred stories told to each other by a group of ten people seven women and three men over tenays All these stories *exist within one story which is about this group of people who come together in Florence uring an *within one story which is about this group of people who come together in Florence uring an of the plague and how they react come together in Florence Poor Percival Stories (Tale 3): How Percival Helped Jack Get Hisself Home during an outbreak of the plague and how they react it which is by going off into the surrounding countryside and recreating a kind of temporary Eden outside the ravages of the times Beyond that there are the author s intentions and hisefence of his work which are a further frame to the whole work Boccaccio sees stories as a form of education in this case to teach his reader which he largely assumed to be women since references to potential male readers are rare about love Love is a vague word in English you can love to have tea with your chips you might love your William Lloyd Garrison and Giuseppe Mazzini dog or the colour yellow on a bedroomoor None of those feature in the Decameron love here is of the sexual or occasionally of the romantic kindThe new society of the ten people is based on affinity and trust They live in common although apparently using the estates of other people and they benefit from the labour of servants so this is socially exclusive unlike The Canterbury Tales in which people come from a mix of social backgrounds The new society is time bound and intended from the first like reading itself to be a temporary respite from events They have a monarch to rule each Moja Wojna day but each of the ten in turn gets oneay to rule One of the advantages of taking part in a group read like our one of the Decameron is benefiting from the contributions that all the other readers make ReemK10 pointed out that that there is a wealth of meaning in the character names and in the complex of numbers three men and seven women the importance of ten and so on but as a reader all of that largely passed me over The only character who really stood out for me was Dioneo and not because he was Dionysian but because he got to tell the last story of everyday This at last was a reference point everything else was in flux for me I felt at one moment that Panfilo was an author stand in but that moment passed and life returned to normal In other words the Decameron has intricate foundations but they Survivors (Morningstar Strain don t interfere with the appearance of the building For the reader there are simply one hundred storiesivided into ten ays set in a framing narrative with some linking text The stories give an impression of the world view of leisured middle to upper class urban people socially below the nobility but of high enough status and wealth to be able to look own on people who are overly concerned with business of mid fourteenth century north Italy The geographical scope ranges over the entire Mediterranean with a couple of stories set in France and England England is as exotic here as Saladin a fantasy Eine kurze Geschichte vom Glück destination wherereams can become true there are no stories set in China or other far eastern locations Företagets lönsamhet, finansiering och tillväxt : mål, samband och mätmetoder despite The Travels of Marco Polo The Merchant of Prato gives an idea of just how natural and everyday that geographical scope was to those involved in commerce in Italy at that time The stories are set throughout history some in antiuity others in the recent past many are roughly contemporary to Boccaccio s time Boccaccio may not have invented any of the stories Many are recognisable retellings and some will in turn be retold by Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales others like the horrible Griselda story seem to have been widely known at the time and pop up in a variety of sources as a role model for a good woman see for instance Le Menagiere ParisIn The Canterbury Tales Chaucer reuses and adapts a few stories from Decameron and takes Boccaccio s idea of a framing narrative however he makes an important change Chaucer s storytellers cover a fairly broad social spectrum view
