"The need for this volume is obvious. The Decameron has arrived. It is now widely read and studied in all kinds of undergraduate courses, and it is an ideal text to study the techniques of fiction, the ways in which texts influence or echo other texts (as well as interact with other artistic media), and the vexing questions of gender."—James V. Mirollo, author of Mannerism and Renaissance Poetry: Concept, Mode, Inner Design
