    2. In the 14th century in Europe, during the devastating times of the Black Death, a group of young Florentines - seven women and three men - decide to flee to seek shelter and escape from the plague in a villa outside of the city of Florence. This is the basic frame used by Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio to tell us one hundred tales of life, love and fortune with The Decameron.After leaving the city, in order to pass the time, an idea of telling stories is brought up and each one of the young g [...]

    3. After a couple of years, two attempts and two different editions, I have finally finished this book. The first great literary accomplishment of 2016.All I can say is that the history of humanity lies on every page of this book. Virtues and defects that have illuminated and darkened human existence were eloquently expressed by Boccaccio's brilliant pen that concocted, with mastery and otherworldly wit, one hundred tales told by seven young ladies and three young men who, to contextualize this fin [...]

    4. Il Decamerone = The Decameron, Giovanni Boccacccio The Decameron is a collection of novellas by the 14th-century Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio (1313–1375). The book is structured as a frame story containing 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men sheltering in a secluded villa just outside Florence to escape the Black Death, which was afflicting the city. Boccaccio probably conceived of The Decameron after the epidemic of 1348, and completed it by 1353. The vario [...]

    5. 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 ten days. All these stories exist within one story which is about this group of people who come together in Florence during an outbreak of the plague and how they react to 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 his defence of his wo [...]

    6. “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, irrever [...]

    7. The Decameron is obviously a hugely influential piece of literature (actually, it's just plain huge), so it's no wonder I'd get around to it eventually. I'm not a huge fan of Chaucer, really, but I did recognise a couple of the source texts he used in this, and I imagine that the choice of frame narrative for the Canterbury Tales might've been suggested to Chaucer by The Decameron. Certainly The Decameron was an influence, anyway.The Decameron also inspired a song by one of my favourite singers, [...]

    8. Permit me to offer another roar of support for reading (The) Decameron. A divine mathematical structure (ten parts of ten chapters with ten characters told over ten days) props up this rollicking ride of classic storytelling. A modern translation (this ed from J.G. Nichols) renders the original in all its libidinous, virtuous mischief, making each page a rapturous pleasure to turn. This book needs no further endorsement from me. Make arrangements to read (The) Decameron before your fatal heart a [...]

    9. My encounter with this book has been a delightful surprise. Expecting a dry and difficult medieval text, I was shocked to find myself unable to put it down. This is a completely rich text that is complex, yet easy and fun to read. Boccaccio has such a fun sense of humor! I found myself laughing aloud. For me, the dirty stories stole the show, but the other stories by no means fall short. His characters and stories are so richly human and he is able to laugh at them, embrace their flaws, forgive [...]

    10. In Florence, in 1350, Giovanni Boccaccio writes the Decameron, a collection of 100 stories told ostensibly by a group of noblemen and women hiding in the countryside from the Black Plague, the effects of which are described at the beginning of the Decameron in one of the world’s most horrifying pieces of journalism. The stories themselves are generally bawdy and funny, and in fact this was made into a porno in 1970, and here are some butts to prove it:buttsIt was influenced in part by the bril [...]

    11. This great book is set in a country estate outside Florence during a plague. The meaning of the setting was not lost upon me: with death beckoning from all corners, one is wise to enjoy life and pass the hours sharing experience among those about whom one cares. These comic and tragic tales are told in rotation among a group of wealthy people killing time within a garden, a little island of civilization, a little Eden -- paradise. The vast majority of these 100 tales involve amusing stories abou [...]

    12. Giovanni Boccaccio’nun seven kadınların acılarını hafifletmeyi amaçlayarak yazdığı “Decameron”, Kara Veba, diğer bir değişle Büyük Veba Salgını’nın rönesansa nasıl ön ayak olduğunu ağır din eleştirileri yaparak okuyucuya sunduğu gerçek bir başyapıt. Yedi kadın üç erkek bir araya gelerek on gün boyunca yüz öykü anlattığı eserde papazlar başta olmak üzere insanların tüm kirli çamaşırlarını ortaya döktüğü hikayeler anlatılmakta. Bir yandan [...]

    13. The Decameron, a collection of 100 short (to short-ish) stories told by ten young Florentine men and women during the plague over ten days is a fun if often frustrating bit of fiction. The stories range from the dazzling, creative and surprising to the more rote and uninspired. First the good: there are all kinds of crazy shenanigans going on in throughout the course of the collection, and it’s quite a bit of fun to read stories written almost 700 years ago that ends with wife swapping, threes [...]

    14. عشر شخصيات،سبع منهم نساء والباقي من الرجال،اهتدى بهم فكرهم للموت الهادئ البعيد عن صخب المدنية وأخطارها المتمثلة في وباء مميت،توافقت ميولهم وأذواقهم وجمعتهم الظروف،اختاروا العزلة وعاشوا في منتجع بعيد،وبدأوا في تسلية وقتهم لتكون أجمل تسلية،فخلال 10 أيام اتفقوا على تخصيص مو [...]

    15. El “Decameron” de Giovanni Boccaccio es uno de esos libros que pueden incluirse dentro de una tríada junto a “Los cuentos de Canterbury” de Geoffrey Chaucey, y el “Canzoniere” de Francesco Petrarca, verdaderos símbolos de la literatura medieval.En realidad, el Decameron es un libro que se ubica entre la edad medieval y el Renacimiento y es el fiel reflejo del pensamiento europeo del siglo XIV.Boccaccio, digno sucesor de Dante Alighieri y discípulo de Petrarca logró reconocimiento [...]

    17. We need tales to survive in this world. To escape the Black Death a group of seven young women and three young men flee to a secluded villa outside Florence. And for two weeks they tell stories - a noble and reasonable way to pass the hard times.Now, The Human Comedy by Balzac comes to mind. In his multi-volume collection, the great novelist was depicting French society of the time. In Boccaccio’s Decameron I find a similar representation of “human comedies”, in a nutshell.The whole collec [...]

    18. Esta edición publicada el año pasado por Libros del Zorro Rojo con traducción de Esther Benítez e ilustraciones de Alex Cerveny recoge una selección de diez historias (de un total de cien) del Decamerón de Giovanni Boccaccio escrita entre 1349 y 1351 y considerada como el equivalente occidental de Las mil y una noches. Historias no centradas solo en el aspecto más difundido del Decamerón, la sexualidad, aunque de estas también hay. Si estamos acostumbrados a arrostrar actitudes y conduc [...]

    19. So many people have read this book and so many great authors have borrowed from it, that a GoodReads critic really has no choice but to give it 5 stars.My favourite day, is the one dedicated to the theme and I quote: "When they are twenty, they need it plenty." Although, to be honest the book never at any point strays very far from the gutter which explains its perennial appeal.The problem with the Decameron is that people are terrified by the length. They think of the time required to read all [...]

    20. Boccaccio, bu büyük yapıtıyla La Fontaine, Chaucer, de Musset vs. gibi birçok yazarı etkilemiş eserlerinde esin kaynağı olmuştur.Boccaccio Decameron'daki öyküleri, kendi ahlak anlayışı ve erdemleri doğrultusunda kaleme almış ve kitabın sonundaki 'Yazarın Vardığı Sonuç' bölümünde gerekli açıklamasını yapmıştır. Bu durum bazı öykülerde okuyuculara ters gelebilir diye düşünüyorum. Öykülerin azımsanmayacak kadar büyük bir kısmında din adamlarını kıy [...]

    21. الديكاميرون مثلها مثل ألف ليلة و ليلة حكايات بالأساس و لذلك لا يبحث القارىء عن أو يتوقع حبكة درامية أو أسلوب سرد مميز, ففي القرن الرابع عشر لا يتوقع الكاتب أن ينتشر عمله بالنسخ المطبوعة و إنما بالحكي, و لذلك فتقييم مثل هذه الأعمال يكون بمدى أصالة و طرافة الحكايات, و على هذا الأ [...]

    22. I hate to say I abandoned or DNF'd this but I just couldn't read any more. I'm happy to have to read the book til day 7 and story 2. The stories were often repetitive and despite the fact that each day offers a different theme, some of the stories easily overlapped and I got to the point where I have no idea what characters feature in which story or which story is even told by which person.I did try to leave days in between the days and then the stories themselves but overall I am still not in t [...]

    23. 10 personas. 10 días. 10 historias cada uno.Este es de esos libros que leí por primera vez en la escuela y que me gustó tanto que terminé leyendolos completos. Las historias son de calidad variables, hay algunas que sacan carcajadas, otrs un tanto bizarras y algunas muy tediosas, pero como nota común es que manejan cierto nivel de erotismo (adaptado a la época, osea que en realidad no hay nada explícito) y que cada día hay una nueva temática.Cada uno de los días tiene una introducción [...]

    24. So I finally found a fifty cent copy of the Penguin Decameron trans'd by McWilliam and here a new trans pops onto the horizon ; this one by Wayne A. Rebhorn from Norton. Following is a review from the new yorkerwyorker/arts/critics"An instructive companion volume to Rebhorn’s Decameron is the recent The Fabliaux: A New Verse Translation, translated by Nathaniel E. Dubin, and described by R. Howard Bloch, in the introduction, as the first substantial collection of fabliaux, in any language, for [...]

    25. From BBC Radio 3 - Drama on 3:Terry Jones introduces five ripping Renaissance yarns from The Decameron, starring John Finnemore, Ingrid Oliver, Carrie Quinlan, Lydia Leonard, Samuel Barnett and Colin McFarlane.The one hundred stories which make up Giovanni Boccaccio's humane and comic masterpiece, come from all over the world. They are vividly reset by Boccaccio among the flourishing merchant classes in the cities of Renaissance Italy. But their witty, satirical, bawdy voice sounds utterly moder [...]

    26. Giovanni Boccaccio's "Decameron" is a monument to Italy and to Italians, mercilessly, hilariously portrayed as they really are (because, you know, when it comes to vices and virtues very little has changed in my country in the last seven centuries). It is a great human mosaic. It is like walking through the crowd of a Mediterranean street market, in that kaleidoscope of colours and smells and noises and people pushing, screaming, laughing, sweating (mind your bag, by the way - Boccaccio's heroes [...]

    27. Had I read this on my own, I probably would have assigned it four stars. But fortunately I read The Decameron for a class taught by a medievalist who really knows how to put this bawdy book into context with Dante and Petrarch, Chaucer, and the Renaissance writers who borrowed from or reacted so strongly to this fascinating and ambiguous work. Is it a satire? Is it allegorical? Is it a playful game? You could read it many times over and not be sure. But you will glean insights into the daily liv [...]

    28. Being stuck on a couch for a day-and-a-half helps finish off books that have been taking too long to read on a regular basis. It was good to polish off Boccaccio.So the plot is pretty easy to understand. It's 14th century Florence, and there's this pesky plague thing (aka, the Black Death) hanging around cramping everyone's style. A handful of folks go off to some safe distance and amuse themselves by telling each other stories - 10 stories a day for 10 days. Cool, right?Almost.The problem is th [...]

    29. These one hundred short tales, written in about 1350, are framed within a charming and idyllic background wherein seven maidens and three youths leave Florence during the plague to spend time in lovely and implausible country palaces entertaining themselves until it is safe to return to the city. One of their means of amusement and entertainment is to tell each other stories, ten each day for ten days, and it is these stories that comprise The Decameron.The stories are delightful and earthy, oft [...]
