The major works of Giovanni Boccaccio

The major works of Giovanni Boccaccio

Giovanni Boccaccio was an Italian writer, and humanist. He was best remembered as the author of the earthy tales in the Decameron. In one of his works he relates that, in his seventh year, before he had ever seen a book of poetry, he began to write verse in his childish fashion, and earned for himself amongst his friends, the name of ‘the poet’!

Boccaccio became a great scholar of the classics, and a great writer too. He wrote about actual people and their real lives. Boccaccio’s most famous work is undoubtedly the ‘Decameron’. There are a hundred tales in the ‘Decameron,’ which Boccaccio published in 1371.

Many later writers, including Chaucer were inspired by ‘Decameron’ because of the compelling way in which these stories were written.
