About

 Giovanni Boccaccio's 14th century classic. Set during the Black Death, The Decameron is a collection of 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men, hunkered down in self-imposed quarantine as they waited out the pandemic plague then sweeping through Florence. The stories of The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic to the comic, from frivolous practical jokes to meaningful life lessons. One of the most literary significant and influential works of European literature, it is considered to be a masterpiece of classical early Italian prose.
