Summary:
At the time of the plague that ravished Europe in the 1340's, a group of friends in Italy enclosed themselves in a castle in an attempt to survive the maelstrom outside. To pass the time, they told stories; ten stories over a period of ten days. This remarkable collection, with an equally well-known preface, has delighted readers ever since with its wit, bawdiness and invention.
