The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio

A group of young people flee to the countryside from plague-ridden Florence and pass the time in their retreat by telling tales of romance. The Decameron, is a 14th-century medieval allegory by Giovanni Boccaccio, told as a frame story encompassing 100 tales by ten young people. The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary import, it documents life in 14th-century Italy.
