About the Author

Although Giovanni Boccaccio was born in France and raised and educated in Naples, where he wrote his first works under the patronage of the French Angevin ruler, Boccaccio always considered himself a Tuscan, like Petrarch and Dante. After Boccaccio returned to Florence in 1340, he witnessed the mostrar mais outbreak of the great plague, or Black Death, in 1348. This provided the setting for his most famous work, the vernacular prose masterpiece Il Decamerone (Decameron) (1353). This collection of 100 short stories, told by 10 Florentines who leave plague-infected Florence for the neighboring hill town of Fiesole, is clear evidence of the beginning of the Renaissance in Italy. The highly finished work exerted a tremendous influence on Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dryden, Keats, and Tennyson even as it established itself as the great classic of Italian fictional prose. Although Chaucer did not mention Boccaccio's name, his Canterbury Tales are clearly modeled on the Decameron. Boccaccio's other important works are a short life of Dante and commentaries on the Divine Comedy; Filocolo (1340) a prose romance; Filostrato (1335), a poem on Troilus and Cressida; and Theseus (1340-41), a poem dealing with the story of Theseus, Palamon, and Arcite. Boccassio's only attempt at writing an epic was a work that Chaucer rendered as his "Knight's Tale." Boccaccio's last work written in Italian was the gloomy, cautionary tale titled The Corbaccio (1355). The Nymph Song (1346), as a counterpiece for the Decameron, demonstrates that it is possible to read the Decameron as an allegory, with the plague representing the spiritual plague of medieval Christianity, viewed from the vantage point of Renaissance humanism. Many of the Decameron tales are indeed paganized versions of medieval sermons about sin and damnation with the morals reversed. After 1363 Boccaccio concentrated on trying to gain enduring fame by writing, in Latin, a series of lives of memorable men and women and a genealogy of the pagan gods. Boccaccio died in 1375.

Giovanni Boccaccio was an Italian writer, poet, correspondent of Petrarch, and an important Renaissance humanist. Boccaccio wrote a number of notable works, including The Decameron and On Famous Women. He wrote his imaginative literature mostly in Tuscan vernacular, as well as other works in Latin, and is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot.

El Decamerón es un libro constituido por cien cuentos, algunos de ellos novelas cortas, escritos por Giovanni Boccaccio entre 1351 y 1353. Desarrolla tres temas principales: el amor, la inteligencia humana y la fortuna. Los diversos cuentos de amor en el Decamerón van de lo erótico a lo trágico. Son relatos de ingenio, bromas y lecciones vitales.

Dopo quattro mesi di ascolto (per un totale di circa quaranta ore), ho finito di ascoltare il podcast di Ad Alta Voce dedicato al Decameron di Giovanni Boccaccio. Devo dire di essermi molto divertita ad ascoltare le cento novelle lette da vari attori e attrici e di aver trovato molto interessanti le spiegazioni sul testo.

La mia paura maggiore – quella di non riuscire a seguire bene l’ascolto a causa dell’italiano del Trecento – non si è verificata. Anzi, vista la bravura di lettori e lettrici è altamente probabile che l’abbia capito con molta più facilità di quanto non mi sarebbe successo a leggermelo da sola.

Mi sono anche molto divertita a twittare le mie impressioni a mano a mano che ascoltavo le novelle e ne è venuto fuori un thread molto lungo, del quale vi lascio il primo tweet qua sotto.

Ora, cosa dire di un mostro sacro come il Decameron? Ci sono due riflessioni che vorrei fare a fine ascolto.

La prima riguarda il vento di morale laica e modernità che inizia a soffiare dalle pagine del Decameron: magari nel Trecento (e per molto tempo a venire) erano concetti percepiti come minacciosi e scandalosi, mentre oggi sono il nostro pane quotidiano. Rimango sempre ammirata dalla capacità della letteratura di mettere nero su bianco il futuro, con le speranze e i pericoli che queste porta con sé.

L’altra riflessione che mi sento di fare è molto femminista. Il Decameron si apre con la dedica alle donne, per terminare con la novella più misogina dell’intera opera: perché? L’idea che mi sono fatta – non so quanto criticamente corretta – è che lo sconvolgimento portato dalla peste si sia esteso anche ai rapporti tra i generi maschile e femminile, che quindi gode di una maggiore libertà; tuttavia, passata la malattia, l’ordine costituito deve ritornare, così si torna a schiacciare le donne sotto il giogo della misoginia più brutale.
