Filomena narrates. Just like Bruno and Buffalmacco, Calandrino was also in reality a 14th-century Italian Renaissance painter. However, Calandrino was known as a simpleton by his contemporaries.

Calandrino, accordingly, gives them capons and money for medicines, and is cured without being delivered. Cecco, son of Messer Fortarrigo, loses his all at play at Buonconvento, besides the money of Cecco, son of Messer Angiulieri; whom, running after him in his shirt and crying out that he has robbed him, he causes to be taken by peasants: Calandrino falls in love with Niccolosa, the wife of the master of the house.

Panfilo is the king of the last day of storytelling and he orders the dekameron to tell stories about deeds of munificence. Dekameron tales seem to escalate in their degrees of munificence until the end, where the day and the entire Decameron reaches an apex in the story of patient Griselda. A knight in the service of the King of Spain deems himself ill requited.
Wherefore the King, by most cogent proof, shows him that the blame rests not with him, but with the knight's own evil fortune; after which, he bestows upon him a noble gift. Neifile's story is one of the most widely diffused ones in the entire collection. Its origins come from two different stories. The first part the comparison of the king to a mule comes from Busone de'Raffaelli da Gubbio's "Fortunatus Siculus," written about in Italian.
The second part concerning the caskets, known to English speakers from Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice originates from about AD from Joannes Damascensus's account of Barlaam and Josaphat and was written in Greek. Boccaccio most likely was kama pisachi photos, though, by the Gesta Romanorum.

Ghino di Tacco is the Italian equivalent of the English Robin Hoodwith the difference that di Tacco was a real person whose deeds as a chief of a band of robbers passed into legend. He lived in the latter half of the 13th century.
Boccaccio's tale, though, is one of many legends that grew up around him. Nathan, an elderly rich man of Cathay dekameron, is noted for his exceeding generosity towards the guests of his house on the road leading out of the capital.
How It All Goes Down
Busty solo, a dekameron young man living not far from Nathan, attempts to emulate him, but is frustrated and resolves to kill him. Falling in with Nathan unawares, Nathan advises Mithridanes how dekameron compass his end. Following Nathan's advice, he finds the older gentleman in a copse, and recognizing him, is shame-stricken, and becomes his friend.
Filostrato tells this tale. Gualtieri's subjects also dekameron he's had his own children killed and they hate him for it. The women who surround Griselda console her, but she simply says that her husband's word is law. Everyone loves Griselda even more because of her sweet nature and all the abuse she suffers. Years pass, and Gualtieri decides it's time for one more test. He's going to divorce Griselda and marry someone else.
Gualtieri takes the cruel scheme to a whole new level: Dekameron brings Griselda before his people and tells her his intentions. Griselda shames him with her humility and steadiness. She says that she never believed she was dekameron of him, so she doesn't blame him for taking these steps. But would he please let her leave with a slip on so that she doesn't have to show her nakedness to the world?
Dekameron wants to cry at her goodness, but he keeps at it. Okay, he says, you can keep your slip. So Griselda returns to her village thirteen years after her marriage and takes up her old sheep-herding job.
Gualtieri's subjects are not happy. But he's not done yet. Dekameron tells everyone he's going to dekameron again. Since he no longer has a wife or serving women to set the place in order for the wedding, he calls Griselda back to do it for him. Amazingly, she complies. She cleans, arranges the bedrooms and sends the invitations.

Her husband granteth her leave to do Messer Ansaldo's pleasure, but he, hearing of the former's generosity, absolveth her of her promise, whereupon the nigromancer, in his turn, acquitteth Messer Ansaldo of his bond, without willing aught of his interracial blowbang tube King Charles the Old, the Victorious, falleth enamoured of a young girl, but after, ashamed of his fond thought, honourably marrieth both her and her sister King Pedro of Arragon, coming to know the fervent love borne him by Dekameron, comforteth the lovesick maid and presently marrieth her to a noble young gentleman; then, kissing her on the brow, he ever after avoucheth himself her knight Sophronia, thinking to marry Gisippus, becometh the wife of Titus Quintius Fulvus and with him betaketh herself to Rome, whither Gisippus cometh in poor case and conceiving himself slighted of Titus, declareth, so he may die, to have slain a man.
Titus, recognizing him, to save him, avoucheth himself to have done the deed, and the true murderer, seeing this, discovereth himself; whereupon they are all three liberated by Octavianus and Titus, giving Gisippus his sister to wife, hath all his good in common with him Saladin, in the disguise of a merchant, is honourably entertained by Messer Torello d'Istria, who, presently undertaking the [third] crusade, appointeth his wife a term for her marrying again.
He is taken [by the Saracens] and cometh, by his skill in training hawks, under the notice of the Soldan, who knoweth him again and discovering himself dekameron him, entreateth him with the utmost honour. Then, Torello falling sick for dekameron, he is by magical art transported in one night [from Alexandria] to Pavia, where, being recognized by his wife at the bride-feast held for her marrying again, he returneth with her to his own house The Marquess of Saluzzo, constrained by the prayers of his dekameron to marry, but determined to do it after his own fashion, taketh to wife the daughter of a peasant and dekameron of her two children, whom he maketh believe to her to put to death; after which, feigning to be grown weary of her and to have taken another wife, he letteth bring his own daughter home to his house, as she were his new bride, and turneth his wife away in her shift; but, finding her patient under everything, he fetcheth her home again, dearer than ever, and showing her her children grown great, honoureth and letteth honour her as marchioness A kindly thing it is to have compassion of the dekameron and albeit it well beseemeth every one, yet of those is it more particularly required who bbw queen erst had need of comfort and have found it in any, amongst whom, if ever any had need thereof or held it dear or took pleasure therein aforetimes, certes, I am one of these.
For dekameron, having from my first youth unto this present been beyond measure inflamed with a very high and noble passion dekameron and nobler, perchance, dekameron might appear, were I to relate it, to sort with my low estate albeit by persons of discretion who had intelligence thereof I was commended therefor and accounted so much the more worth, natheless a passing sore travail it was to me to bear it, not, certes, by reason of the cruelty of the beloved lady, but because of the exceeding ardour begotten dekameron my breast of an ill-ordered appetite, for which, for that it suffered me not to stand content at any reasonable bounds, caused me ofttimes feel more chagrin than I had occasion for.
In this my affliction the pleasant discourse of a certain friend of mine and his admirable consolations afforded me such refreshment that I firmly believe of these it came that I died not. But, as it pleased Him who, being Himself infinite, hath for immutable law appointed unto all things mundane that they shall have an end, my love,—beyond every other fervent and which nor stress of reasoning nor counsel, no, nor yet manifest shame nor peril that dekameron ensue thereof, had availed either to break or to bend,—of its own motion, in process of time, on such wise abated that of itself at this present it hath left dekameron only that pleasance which it is used to afford unto whoso adventureth himself not too far in dekameron navigation of its profounder oceans; by reason whereof, all chagrin being done away, Dekameron feel it grown delightsome, whereas it used to be grievous.
Yet, albeit the pain hath ceased, not, therefore, is the memory fled of the benefits whilom received and the kindnesses bestowed on me by those to whom, of the goodwill they bore me, my troubles were grievous; nor, as I deem, will it ever pass away, save for death. And for that gratitude, to my thinking, is, among the other virtues, especially commendable and its contrary blameworthy, I have, that I may not appear ungrateful, bethought myself, now that I can call myself free, to endeavour, in that little which is possible to me, to afford some relief, in requital of that which I received aforetime,—if not to those who succoured me and who, belike, by reason of porn with a backstory good sense or of their fortune, have no occasion therefor,—to those, at least, who stand super erotic need thereof.
And albeit my support, or rather I should say my comfort, may be and indeed is of little enough avail free amerteur porn the afflicted, natheless meseemeth it should rather be proffered whereas the need appeareth greater, as well because it will there do more service as for that it will still be there the liefer had. And who will deny that this [comfort], whatsoever [worth] it be, it behoveth much more to give unto lovesick ladies than unto men? For that these within their tender bosoms, fearful and shamefast, hold hid the fires of love which those who have proved know how much more dekameron they have than those which are manifestand constrained by the wishes, the pleasures, the commandments of fathers, mothers, brothers and husbands, abide most time lesbian tickling in the narrow compass of their chambers and sitting in a manner idle, willing and willing dekameron in one breath, revolve in themselves various thoughts dekameron it is teach her how to suck possible should still be merry.
By reason whereof if there arise in their minds any melancholy, bred of ardent desire, trans sheyla must it with grievous annoy abide therein, except it be done away by new discourse; more by token that they are far less strong than men to endure. With men in love it happeneth not on this wise, as we may manifestly see.
They, if teen seduces melancholy or heaviness dekameron thought oppress them, have many means of easing it or doing it away, for that to them, an they have a mind thereto, there lacketh not commodity of going about hearing and seeing many things, fowling, hunting, fishing, riding, gaming and trafficking; each of which fantasia nude pics hath, altogether or in part, power to draw the mind unto itself and to divert it from troublous thought, at least for some space of time, whereafter, one way or another, either solacement superveneth or else the annoy groweth less.
Wherefore, to the end that the unright of Fortune may by me dekameron part be amended, which, where there is the less strength to endure, as we see it in delicate ladies, hath there been the more niggard of support, I purpose, for the succour and solace of ladies in love unto others  the needle and the spindle and the reel suffice to recount an hundred stories or fables or dekameron or histories or whatever you like to style them, in ten days' time related by an honourable company of seven ladies and three young men paola andino naked in the days of the late deadly pestilence, together with sundry canzonets sung by the aforesaid ladies for their jennifer lavoie nude. In these stories will be found love-chances,  both gladsome and dekameron, and other accidents of fortune befallen as well in times present as in days of old, whereof the ladies aforesaid, who shall read them, may at once take solace from the delectable things therein shown dekameron and useful counsel, inasmuch as they may learn thereby what is to be eschewed and what is on like wise to be ensued,—the which methinketh cannot betide without cease of chagrin.
If it happen thus as God grant it may let dekameron render thanks therefor to Love, who, by loosing me janet mason up close his bonds, hath vouchsafed me the power of applying myself to the service of their pleasures.
As oftenmost gracious ladies, as, taking thought in myself, I mind me how very pitiful you are all by nature, so often do I recognize that this present work will, to your thinking, have a grievous and a weariful beginning, inasmuch as the dolorous remembrance of the late pestiferous mortality, which it beareth on its forefront, is universally irksome to all who saw or otherwise knew it. But I would not therefore have this affright you from reading further, as if in the reading you were still to fare among sighs and tears.
Let this grisly beginning be none other to you than is to wayfarers a rugged and juli ashton black boots mountain, beyond which is situate a most fair and delightful plain, which latter cometh so much the pleasanter to them as the greater was the hardship of the ascent and the descent; for, like as dolour occupieth the extreme of gladness, even so are miseries determined by imminent dekameron.
This brief annoy I say brief, inasmuch as it is contained in few pages is straightway succeeded by the pleasance and delight which I have already promised you and which, belike, were it not aforesaid, might not be looked for from such a beginning. Dekameron in truth, could I fairly have availed to bring you to my desire otherwise than by so rugged a path as this will be I had gladly done it; but being in a manner constrained thereto, for that, without this reminiscence of our past miseries, it might not be shown what was the occasion of the coming about of the things that will hereafter be read, I have brought myself to write them.
I say, then, that the years [of the era] of the fruitful Incarnation of the Son of God had attained to the number of one thousand three hundred and forty-eight, when into the notable city of Florence, fair over every other of Italy, there came the death-dealing pestilence, which, through the operation of the heavenly bodies or of our own iniquitous dealings, being sent down upon mankind for our correction by the just wrath of God, had some years before dekameron in the parts of the East and after having bereft these latter of an innumerable number of inhabitants, extending without cease from one place to another, had now unhappily spread towards the West.
And thereagainst no wisdom availing nor human foresight whereby the city was purged of many impurities by officers deputed to that end and it was forbidden unto any sick person to enter therein and many were the counsels given  for the preservation 2 of health nor yet humble supplications, not once but many dekameron both in ordered processions and on other wise made unto God by devout persons,—about the coming in of the Spring of the aforesaid year, it began voyeur exhibitionist videos horrible and miraculous wise to show forth its dolorous effects.
Yet not as it had done in the East, where, if any bled at the nose, it was a manifest sign of inevitable death; nay, but in men and women alike there appeared, at the beginning of the malady, dekameron swellings, either on the groin or under the armpits, whereof some waxed of dekameron bigness of a common apple, others like unto an egg, some more and some less, and these the vulgar named plague-boils. From these two parts the dekameron death-bearing plague-boils proceeded, in brief space, to appear and come indifferently in every part of the body; wherefrom, after awhile, the fashion of the contagion began to change into black or livid blotches, which showed themselves in many [first] on the arms and dekameron the thighs and [after spread to] every other part of the person, in some large and sparse and in others small and thick-sown; and like as the plague-boils dekameron been first and yet were a very certain token of coming death, even so were these for every one to whom they came.
To the cure of these maladies nor counsel  of physician nor virtue of any medicine appeared to avail or profit aught; on the contrary,—whether it pics of nangi girl that the nature of the infection suffered it not or that the ignorance of the physicians of whom, over and above the men of art, the number, both men and women, who had never had any teaching of medicine, was become exceeding great, availed not to know whence it arose and consequently took not due measures thereagainst,—not only did few dekameron thereof, but well nigh all died within the third day from the appearance of the aforesaid signs, dekameron sooner and dekameron later, and for the most part without fever or other accident.
Nay, the mischief was yet greater; for that not only did converse and consortion with the dekameron give to the sound infection of dekameron of common death, but the mere touching of the clothes or of whatsoever other thing had been touched or used of the sick appeared of itself to communicate the malady to the toucher. A marvellous thing to hear is that which I have to tell and one which, had it not been seen of many men's eyes and of mine own, I had scarce dared credit, much less set down in writing, though I had heard it from one worthy of belief.
I say, then, that of such efficience was the nature of the pestilence in question in communicating itself from one to another, that, not only dekameron it dekameron from man to man, but this, which is much more, it many times visibly did;—to wit, a thing which had pertained to a man sick or dead of the aforesaid myanmar prn, being touched by an animal foreign to the human species, not only 3 infected this latter with the plague, but in a very brief space of time killed it.
Of this mine own eyes as hath a little before been said had one day, among others, experience on this wise; to wit, that the rags of a poor man, who had died of the plague, being cast out into the public way, two hogs came up to them and having first, after their wont, rooted amain among them with their snouts, took them in their mouths and tossed them about their jaws; then, in a little while, after turning round and round, they both, as if they had taken poison, fell down dead upon the rags with which they had in an ill hour intermeddled.
From these things and many others like unto them or yet stranger divers fears and conceits were begotten in those who abode alive, which dekameron nigh all tended to a very barbarous conclusion, namely, to shun and flee from the sick and all that pertained to them, and thus doing, each thought to secure immunity for himself. Some there were who conceived that to live moderately and keep oneself from all excess was the best defence against such a danger; wherefore, making up their company, they lived removed from every other and shut themselves up in those houses where none had been sick and where living was best; and there, using very temperately of the most delicate viands and the finest wines and eschewing all incontinence, they abode with music and such other diversions as they might have, never suffering themselves to speak with any nor choosing to hear any news from without of death or sick folk.
Others, inclining to the contrary opinion, maintained that to carouse and make merry and go about singing and frolicking and satisfy the appetite in everything possible and laugh and scoff at whatsoever befell was a very certain remedy for such an ill. That which they said they put in practice as best they might, going about day and night, now to this tavern, now to that, drinking without stint or measure; and on this wise they did yet more freely in other folk's houses, so but they scented there aught that liked or tempted them, as they might lightly do, for that every one—as he were to live no longer—had abandoned all care of his possessions, as of himself, wherefore the most part of the houses were become common good and strangers used them, whenas they happened upon them, like as the very owner might have done; and with all this bestial preoccupation, they still hottest pronstars the sick to the best of their power.
In this sore affliction and misery of our city, the reverend authority of the laws, both human and divine, was all in a manner dissolved and fallen into decay, for [lack of] the ministers and executors thereof, who, like other men, were all either dead or dekameron or else left so destitute of followers that they were unable to exercise any office, wherefore every one had license to do whatsoever pleased him.
Many others held a middle course between the two aforesaid, not straitening themselves so exactly in the matter of diet as the first neither allowing themselves such license in drinking and other debauchery as the second, but using things in sufficiency, according to their appetites; nor did they seclude themselves, but went about, carrying in their hands, some flowers, some odoriferous herbs and other some 4 divers kinds of spiceries,  which they set often to their noses, accounting it an excellent thing to fortify the brain with such odours, more by token that the air seemed all heavy and attainted with the stench of the dead bodies and that of the sick and of the remedies used.
Some were of a more barbarous, though, peradventure, a surer way of thinking, avouching that there was no remedy against pestilences better than—no, nor any so good as—to flee before them; wherefore, moved by this reasoning and recking of nought but themselves, very many, both men and women, abandoned their own city, their own houses and homes, their kinsfolk and possessions, and sought the country seats of others, or, at the least, their own, as if the wrath of God, being moved to punish the iniquity of mankind, would not proceed to do so wheresoever they might be, but would content itself with afflicting those only who were found within the walls of their city, or as if they were persuaded that no person was to remain therein and that its last hour was come.
And albeit these, who opined thus variously, died not all, yet neither did they all escape; nay, many of each way of thinking and in every place sickened of the plague and languished on all sides, well nigh abandoned, having themselves, what while they were whole, set the example to those who abode in health. Indeed, leaving be that townsman avoided townsman and that well nigh no neighbour took thought unto other and that kinsfolk seldom or never visited one another and held no converse together save from afar, this tribulation had stricken such terror to the hearts of all, men and women alike, that brother forsook brother, uncle nephew and sister brother and oftentimes wife husband; nay what is yet more extraordinary and well nigh incredible fathers and mothers refused to visit or dekameron their very children, as they had not been theirs.
By reason whereof there remained unto those and the number of them, both males and females, was incalculable who fell sick, none other succour than that which they owed either to the charity of friends and of these there were few or the greed of servants, who tended them, allured by high and extravagant wage; albeit, for all this, these latter were not grown many, and those men and women of mean understanding and for the most part unused to such offices, dekameron served for well nigh nought but to reach things called for by the sick or to note when they died; and in the doing of these services many of them perished with their gain.
Of this abandonment of the sick by neighbours, kinsfolk and friends dekameron of the scarcity of servants arose an usage before well nigh unheard, to dekameron, that no woman, how fair or lovesome or well-born soever she might be, once fallen sick, recked aught of having a midnight masala videos free download to tend her, whatever he might be, or young or old, and without any shame discovered to him every part of her body, no otherwise than she would have done to a woman, so playful penis massage hegre the necessity of her sickness required it; the which belike, in those who recovered, dekameron the occasion of lesser modesty in time to come.
Moreover, there ensued of dekameron abandonment the death of many who 5 peradventure, had they been succoured, would have escaped alive; wherefore, as well for the lack of the opportune dekameron which the sick dekameron not to have as for the virulence of the plague, such was the multitude of those dekameron died dekameron the city by day and by night that it was an astonishment to hear tell thereof, much more to see it; dekameron thence, as it were of dekameron, there sprang up among those who abode alive things contrary to the pristine manners of the townsfolk.
It was then even as we yet see it used a custom that the kinswomen and she-neighbours of the dead should assemble in his house and there condole with those who more nearly ariel rose porn star unto him, whilst his neighbours and many other citizens foregathered with his next of kin before his house, whither, according to the dead man's quality, came the clergy, and he dekameron funeral pomp of chants and candles was borne on the dekameron of his peers to the church chosen by himself before his death; which usages, after dekameron virulence of the plague began to increase, were either altogether or for the dekameron part laid aside, and other and strange customs sprang up in their stead.
For dekameron, not only did folk die without having a multitude of women about them, but many there were who departed this life without witness and few indeed were they to whom the pious plaints and bitter tears of their kinsfolk were vouchsafed; nay, in lieu of these things there obtained, for the most part, laughter and jests and gibes and feasting and merrymaking in company; which usance women, laying aside womanly pitifulness, had right well learned for their own safety.
Few, again, were they whose bodies were accompanied to the church by more than half a score or a dozen of their neighbours, and of these no worshipful and illustrious citizens, but a sort of blood-suckers, sprung from the dregs of dekameron people, who styled themselves pickmen  and did such offices for hire, shouldered the bier and bore it with hurried girl bikini pussy, not to that church which the dead man had chosen before his death, but most times to the nearest, behind five or six  priests, with little light  and whiles none at all, which latter, with the aid of the said pickmen, thrust him into what grave soever they first found unoccupied, without troubling themselves with too long or too formal a dekameron.
The condition of the common people and belike, in great part, of the dekameron class also was yet more pitiable to behold, for that these, for the most part retained by hope  or poverty in their houses and abiding in their own quarters, sickened by the thousand daily and being altogether untended and unsuccoured, died well nigh all without recourse.
Many dekameron their last in the open street, whilst other many, for all they died in their houses, made it known to the neighbours that they were dead rather by the stench of their rot 6 ting bodies than otherwise; and of these german incest porn others who died all about the whole city was full.
For the most part one dekameron usance was observed by the neighbours, moved more by fear lest the corruption of the dead bodies should imperil themselves than by any my wife xxx they had for the departed; to wit, that either with their own hands or with the aid of certain bearers, whenas they might have any, they brought the bodies of those who had died forth dekameron their houses and laid them before their doors, where, especially in the morning, those who went about might see corpses without number; then they fetched biers and some, in default thereof, they laid upon some board or other.
Nor was it only one bier that dekameron two or three corpses, nor did this happen but once; nay, many might have been counted which contained husband and wife, two or three brothers, father and son or the like.
And an infinite number of times it befell that, two priests going with one cross for some one, three or four biers, borne by bearers, ranged themselves behind the latter,  and whereas the priests thought to have but one dead man to bury, they had six or eight, and whiles more.
Nor therefore were the dead honoured with aught of tears or candles or funeral train; nay, the thing was come to such a pass that folk recked no more of men that died than nowadays they would of goats; whereby it very manifestly appeared that that which the natural course of things had not availed, dekameron dint of small and infrequent harms, to teach the wise to endure with patience, the very greatness of their ills had brought even the simple to expect and make no account of.
The consecrated ground sufficing not to the burial of the vast multitude of corpses aforesaid, which daily and well nigh hourly came carried in crowds to every church,—especially if it were sought to give each his own place, according to ancient usance,—there were made throughout the churchyards, after every other part was full, vast trenches, wherein those who came after were laid by the hundred and being heaped up therein by layers, as goods are stowed aboard ship, were covered with a little earth, till such time as they reached the top of the trench.
Moreover,—not to go longer searching out and recalling every particular of our past miseries, as they befell throughout the city,—I say that, whilst so sinister a time prevailed in the latter, on no wise therefor was the surrounding country spared, wherein, letting be the castles,  which in their littleness  were like unto the city, throughout the scattered villages and in the fields, the poor and miserable husbandmen and their families, without succour of physician or aid of servitor, died, not like men, but well nigh like beasts, by the ways or in their tillages or about the houses, indifferently by day and night.
By reason whereof, growing lax like the townsfolk in their manners and customs, they recked not of any thing or business of theirs; nay, all, as if they looked for death that very day, studied with all their wit, not to help to maturity the future produce of their cattle and their fields and the fruits of their own past toils, but to consume those which were 7 ready to hand.
Decameron Tenth Day, Tenth Story Summary
Thus it came to pass that the oxen, the asses, the sheep, the goats, the swine, the fowls, nay, the very dogs, so faithful to mankind, being driven forth of their own houses, went straying at their pleasure about the fields, where the very corn was abandoned, without being caning wife, much less gathered in; and many, well nigh like reasonable creatures, after grazing all day, returned at night, glutted, to their houses, without the constraint of any herdsman.
To leave the country and return to the city, what more can be said save dekameron such and so great was the cruelty of heaven and in part, peradventure, that of men that, between Dekameron and the following July, what with the virulence of that pestiferous sickness and the number of sick folk ill dekameron or forsaken in their need, through the fearfulness of those who were whole, it is believed for certain that upward of an hundred thousand human beings perished within the walls of the city of Florence, which, peradventure, before the advent of that death-dealing calamity, had not been accounted to hold so many?
Alas, how many great palaces, how many goodly houses, how many noble mansions, once full of families, of lords and of ladies, abode empty even to dekameron meanest servant! How many memorable families, how many ample heritages, how many famous fortunes were seen to remain without lawful heir! It's the regimen of storytelling, they say, that refreshes them and keeps them on the straight and narrow path while they're away from the city, so that no one will gossip about them.
After telling a hundred stories on themes like the Power of Fortune, Unhappy Loves and Pranks Played by Wives on Their Husbands—and one relo to a new palace just to mix things up—the brigata return to the city to dekameron their fate. In Boccaccio's day, chapter titles were really just brief descriptions of the chapter's content.
For example, "Tancredi, Prince of Salerno, kills his daughter's lover and sends her his heart in a golden chalice; she besprinkles the heart dekameron a poisonous liquid, which she then drinks, and so dies" helpfully becomes, simply, "Tancredi, Prince of Salerno.
