Giovanni Boccaccio (1313 in Florenz oder Certaldo-21. Dezember 1375 in Certaldo bei Florenz) war ein italienischer Schriftsteller, Demokrat, Dichter und bedeutender Vertreter des Humanismus. Sein Meisterwerk, das Decamerone, porträtiert mit bis dahin unbekanntem Realismus und Witz die facettenreiche Gesellschaft des 14. Jahrhunderts und erhebt ihn zum Begründer der prosaischen Erzähltradition in Europa. "Fiammetta" wird als Meilenstein der feministischen Literatur angesehen. Eine bezaubernde Europäische Romanze aus der Sicht einer Frau geschrieben, anerkannt als der erste psychologische Roman überhaupt, geschrieben im Stil des "stream-of-consciousness"
Famous women by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,051 libraries worldwide
"After the composition of the Decameron, and under the influence of Petrarch's humanism, Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375) devoted the last decades of his life to compiling encyclopedic works in Latin. Among them is Famous Women, the first collection of biographies in Western literature devoted exclusively to women. The 106 women whose life stories make up this volume range from the exemplary to the notorious, from historical and mythological figures to Renaissance contemporaries. In the hands of a master storyteller, these brief biographies afford a fascinating glimpse of a moment in history when medieval attitudes toward women were beginning to give way to more modern views of their potential

Boccaccios wichtigstes Werk: Sieben Frauen und drei Männer verbringen gemeinsam zehn Tage auf einem Landgut in der Nähe von Florenz, während in der Stadt die Pest wütet. Sie vertreiben sich die Zeit, indem sie einander reihum Geschichten erzählen. In diesen erotischen Geschichten werden lustige und tragische Begebenheiten rund um die Liebe erzählt, die neben viel Vergnügen auch guten Rat gewähren und unterrichten, was man meiden und was man erstreben soll. "Mir dünkt, solchen Geschichten könne keine üble Laune standhalten."

Life of Dante by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )
78 editions published between 1544 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 792 libraries worldwide
"Boccaccio, with his unquenchable interest in the lives of great men, was a fervent admirer of Dante, both in terms of his life and his work. As such, he embarked upon writing this short piece as a vindication of the merits of his illustrious fellow-citizen. Yet far from being simply an account of the misfortunes that befell the great Florentine exile, the resulting Life of Dante also gives precious insight into Boccaccio's own ideas on a wide variety of issues including poetry, literature, women and society."--Jacket
The book of Theseus = Teseida delle nozze d'Emilia by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )
47 editions published between 1430 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 790 libraries worldwide
"The identification of the autograph Aut (ms. Laurenziano Acquisti e Doni 325) of the Teseida in the 1920s provided the authentic version of Boccaccio's poem and his till then unknown commentary of more than 1300 glosses. The manuscript was not without problems, which challenged the three 20th century editors: S. Battaglia (1938), A. Roncaglia (1941), and A. Limentani (1964). While Boccaccio himself had retraced some fading and water-staining, a later hand substantially--and often inaccurately--retraced text in the poem and, in particular, the glosses. Since Aut was the only known copy of the Teseida with Boccaccio's extended commentary, the editors were largely unable to correct any inexact or missing text in the glosses. Infra-red and ultra-violet photography, however, have resolved these problems: Boccaccio's original readings have been identified and more than a hundred examples of incorrectly over-traced text have been restored. The edition has also benefitted from the editors' recent work on the Teseida manuscripts, first of all from the identification of NO (Napoli, Biblioteca Statale Oratoriana dei Girolamini, Cod. CF.2.8), a mid-15th century manuscript containing 1100 glosses, as a copy of a lost beta autograph of the Teseida. Besides providing an improved text of the poem and glosses, the new edition publishes the three paratexts that Boccaccio used to adorn Aut, but which the previous editions omitted. These are the paraphs, the drawing-spaces, and the under-dotting for elision. The edition also includes reproductions of all the 35 drawings from NO, which are being published for the first time. In sum, it presents a version of the Teseida that is much more accurate than the earlier versions and that promises to be an important research tool for 21st century scholars and scholarship"--

Boccaccio's expositions on Dante's Comedy by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 170 libraries worldwide
"In the fall of 1373, the city of Florence commissioned Giovanni Boccaccio to give lectures on Dante for the general population. These lectures, undeniably the most learned of all the early commentaries, came to be known as the Expositions on Dante's Divine Comedy. Though interrupted at Inferno XVII, they provide profound, near-contemporary interpretations of Dante's poem and contain, in many ways, some of the most beautiful aspects of Boccaccio's admirable literary production: narrative vignettes worthy of the best pages of the Decameron, insights on the rapidly changing approach to literary commentary, and a heartfelt belief that poetry is the most faithful guardian of history, philosophy, and theology." "Michael Papio's excellent translation finally makes the entirety of Boccaccio's often overlooked masterpiece accessible to a wider public and supplies a wealth of information in the introduction and notes that will prove useful to specialists and general readers alike."--Jacket
