You may use any one (or two) of the stories from the Decameron. If you wish to use a different document, you may do so only after receiving approval from me. YOUR ASSIGNMENT is to offer a historical interpretation of the document, to make use of this source–to squeeze some meaning from the material which demonstrates your understanding of the period in which it was produced. This is NOT a research paper; you will not find helpful versions on online; I know what it says on Wikipedia. Take what you’ve learned, use it analyze a tale, use, cite and quote passages from Boccaccio as your evidence.
Do not summarize the document.
Do not describe the contents.
Be sure that your discussion/analysis is sustained throughout.
Be aware of the difference between an interpretation and an opinion
Consider what it tells you about renaissance/reformation society:
a> the conventional beliefs
b> the view of religion and the church
c> the author’s intentions
d> what the author considered persuasive
e> the reasons for writing the document
f> who/what stood to gain from the contents
g> who made up the audience for such a document
h> evidence for social, economic, intellectual or religious developments
Do NOT try to do all of these. Consider both the change and the continuities in Renaissance ideas, thoughts, images.
