£9.99

Paperback

Bawdy and moving, hilarious and reflective – these stories offer the very best of Boccaccio’s Decameron in a brilliant, playful new translation. This hugely enjoyable volume collects the best stories of Boccaccio’s masterwork in a fresh, accessible new translation by Peter Hainsworth. It includes such celebrated, thought-provoking tales as ‘Isabella and the Pot of Basil’ (famously adapted by Keats) and ‘Patient Griselda’ alongside many boisterous and daring stories featuring faithless wives, philandering priests and curious nuns.
