About the Author

Giovanni Boccaccio (1313 – 21 December 1375) was an Italian author and poet. He began writing in Naples. That is where he fell in love with the Fiammetta that he made famous in his work. Most of his Il Filostrato, which treats Troilus and Cressida’s love, has been translated by Chaucer. In 1358 he completed his great work, Decameron. Bocaccio, along with Petrarch, who was his friend, were important Renaissance humanists. Boccaccio is particularly notable for his dialogue, of which it has been said that it surpasses in verisimilitude all of his contemporaries.
