Boccaccio and Petrarca


Description

This course examines selections from Boccaccio’s Decamerone and Petrarca’s Canzoniere, two works which, along with Dante’s Divina Commedia, have perhaps had more influence on Western literature than individual works by any other Italian author. The course sets Boccaccio’s stories and Petrarca’s poems into the philosophical, literary, economic and social context of the Italian Trecento, and explores their literary interpretations in order to appreciate and understand their richness and variety.
