    1. Giovanni Boccaccio G.H. McWilliam

      Giovanni Boccaccio 1313 21 December 1375 was an Italian author and poet, a friend and correspondent of Petrarch, and an important Renaissance humanist in his own right and author of a number of notable works including the Decameron, On Famous Women, and his poetry in the Italian vernacular Boccaccio is particularly notable for his dialogue, of which it has been said that it surpasses in verisimilitude that of just about all of his contemporaries, since they were medieval writers and often followed formulaic models for character and plot.

    1. Basically Aesops Fables for lovers, this series of short medieval tales tell of love, lust and cuckoldry and delve into the frivolous and fantastic all of which still have an appeal today.Sowing the seeds of loveIf you are a lusty young Italian with the body of Adonis and the face of Paris, then what could be better than banging an equally lusty young nun Why, banging nine nuns and the Abbess of course Via his friend Nuto, the strapping young Masetto becomes aware of an opening at the local nun [...]


    2. If your reading lately has been sorely lacking in a certain bawdy ribaldry, you need look no further than the fourteenth century when Giovanni Boccaccio presented his The Decameron,the classic work involving ten Florentines who have escaped their plaque ridden city and are passing the time by telling stories Penguin has collected eleven of the , ahem, romantic stories here as part of their Great Loves series.These gathered tales concern love and lots of s e x, though they are in no way remotely [...]



    3. This is definitely my favourite of the Penguin Great Loves series that I have read so far The Eaten Heart is a selection of 11 of the tales from Boccaccio s Decameron, a text that I previously knew nothing about, but this little selection has definitely piqued my interest to read the text in full some day The stories contained in this slim volume are surprisingly bawdy and silly, and a lot were very good fun From a young peasant pretending to be deaf and dumb to seduce a whole nunnery, to a ridi [...]


    4. I love the idea that a group of people told these stories to each other in order to distract themselves from the Plague What I don t love, however, is how uninteresting these stories actually were Even the title story, The Eaten Heart, was a let down Here I am expecting the heart to be eaten right out of the lover s body, and instead it s just served to her on a plate Disappointing.


    5. Fun, bawdy and occasionally a little disturbing Semi adult fairy tales for the vaguely twisted Part of the classic loves collection.


    6. This was a very good book I enjoyed it You have to come to the book knowing the stories are a bit risqu , but it is overall very interesting.


    7. While these stories were mostly fun and entertaining, there was not a lot of variety between them The characters were essentially the same the highly sexual yet unsatisfied female, the sexual male who can sate her desires, and the cuckholded male in different scenarios, but the stories were short and generally amusing My favourite was probably the first one who DOESN T want to read about a bunch nuns conspiring to have have sex with the sexy gardener as I type this, I feel like I am pitching a p [...]


    8. These were a lot of fun to read Short and funny, and I love the idea of a bunch of Florentines hiding in a cave from the Black Death telling each other risque stories It was nice to take a break from the modern short story where you don t get the whole story and enjoy a bunch of stand alone stories I guess where tales differ from short stories is how they are always complete.Although on the surface many of the tales seem trivial quite a few run along the lines of boy meets girl, girl and boy hav [...]


    9. I wanted to add stars to this book because I love the object of this book Part of Penguin s series of classics with a very hand made feel Many books in the series have embossings and blind printing on the cover But the content only rated 3 stars The 3rd in Penguin s Great Loves series, this one contains 11 stories from Boccaccio s Decameron Some the later stories in the book are quite nice little tragedies similar to Romeo and Juliet where women keep their lover s head in a pot of basil watered [...]


    10. What an amazing little book, part of Penguin s Great Loves series, which in itself is a thing of wonder oh, how i love thee Penguin o These mostly bawdy selected tales out of Boccaccio s Decameron are a delight, surprising me with their frankness and candor And they were written in the 1300s Quite funny as well I ll definitely be grabbing myself a copy of the Decameron at some point, to dig into it, now that i ve had such a lovely taste.


    11. Crude and humorous in a strange way, these are for people who didn t think their fairytales were raunchy enough There are a lot of problems with them, or I found there were a lot of problems with them, but considering the time that they were produced that can be overlooked The first story starts your right off in the ribald feeling with a man seducing nuns in a convent The title talks about love, but a better one would be Unlikely tales of sex as that s what most stories revolve around.


    12. It s easy to understand where the modern comedy romances come from when you read these tales Nun s gone awry, accidental bedswaps and much much It reminds the reader about the 14th century sense of humor According to texts like these it was a romp and a riot It really shows how great the penguin great lovers series is.


    13. The stories in this book were all surprising coming from a 14th century writer I found it interesting that female desire was seen as something normal and human how things changed in centuries thereafter The stories themselves weren t fantastic and a couple were downright rapey , but it was a quick read every evening during a week where I struggled to find time for myself.


    14. Very very very interesting and makes a fun, laid back reading Suitable for a weekend break at the beach.However, instead of wasting money on a cheaper version, go for the real deal Read the Decameron.Anyway, this is the first title that got me so hooked on Boccaccio Love every piece of it.


    15. Taken from the Decameron, these are the stories of love I remember the selections I read in high school were pretty funny, but these were hilarious I m not sure there were any morals to be gained and they certainly weren t very romantic, but I m glad it was entertaining.


    16. Goodness.Love could not be any exciting A definite page turner with lots left to the imagination If only Love and all this love making was as great now as it was before






    17. Disturbingly engrossing, and vividly grotesque Do not read at the dinner table I enjoyed the outdated narrative, though the book is vague about when exactly these stories were told.



    18. I think Woody Allen must have read this book when he was researching Everything you wanted to know about sex but were afraid to ask Short stories, not about love, but sex in its various forms.


    19. It s the Canterbury Tales, essentially.Tales of stupid people doing stupid things in the name of love.Quotes Whoever it was,Whoever the villainThat stole my pot of herbs, etc.




    20. Loved this Hilarious, gruesome at times too A great lighthearted read At times hard to believe this was written in 14th century



    21. The stories were quite entertaining and short enough to remain captivating Interesting to read stories from the 14th century.
