About

Dr. Dino S. Cervigni, Professor Emeritus of Romance Languages and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and ACMRS Presents: The Decameron Unknown to Boccaccio’s and Chaucer’s Scholars: The Evening Lyrical Moments
We know Boccaccio as a storyteller who influenced all subsequent storytellers in the western world, including Chaucer. We also know the Decameron as a collection of one hundred tales narrated by ten young people—seven ladies and three men—over the course of ten days they spend outside the city of Florence, from which they flee to escape the plague which decimated its population during the year 1348.

Join Dr. Dino S. Cervigni and ACMRS for a presentation to explore the function of these ten canzonette (ballads) of the Decameron, which are lyrical moments, during which each one of the ten young story tellers expresses their feelings, which are of love. It will also seek to show the many ways in which Boccaccio rewrites completely the lyrical tradition practiced by his much admired Dante and Petrarch.
