Reconsidering Boccaccio highlights the great Florentine writer Giovanni Boccaccio's remarkable achievements in the fourteenth century as a cultural mediator; his exceptional social, geographic, and intellectual range; and the influence of his legacy on numerous cultural networks. Grounded in Boccaccio's own writings, Reconsidering Boccaccio brings a variety of methodologies and critical approaches to the works of one of the 'three crowns' of Italian literature. Containing essays by scholars not only of Italian literature, but also history, law, classics, and Middle Eastern literature, this collection is part of a vital movement to open up a dialogue among researchers in various areas of study that touch on the works of Boccaccio. The volume highlights the necessity of a technical and historical framework when approaching Boccaccio studies, while also shedding new light on the lives of women and their role in the reception of Boccaccio's works.
