Overview

Overview

"The notes are a model of economy... The introduction is quite superb... The volume as a whole is a worthy addition to a series which has already begun to establish high expectations." TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT

Chaucer made extensive use of Boccacio's romances as a basis for his major works, and any analysis of his handling of his sources must depend on a knowledge of the Italian poet's work.

Reviews

`His Filostrato has far more energy and subtlety than the R.K. Gordon version; it reminds us just how good Boccaccio is.' THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
