Stephen Greenblatt

A classic book to be read if you're Italian and read if you're not.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I feel pretty dumb rating something like the Decameron on a scale from 1-5. Obviously, this is a master piece of literature and a very interesting Collection for any short story writer to have in his or her library. The stories are vibrant and diverse even as the language is pretty spare. They conjure up images of a vanished world where the alien and the oddly familiar intermingle.
