Reviews

"Boccaccio scholars and all readers interested in the Decameron who are tempted to dismiss this study for its title's last words - the Ciceronian Renaissance in the Decameron - should take heed: This substantial volume by Michaela Paasche and Robert Grudin, a wife and husband team of scholars, succeeds in offering what many other studies of comparable length have failed to do, namely, a comprehensive analysis of Boccaccio's masterpiece in its entirety from a novel perspective, which is appealing and which explains many challenging elements of Boccaccio's masterpiece." - Annali d'Italianistica

"By exposing Boccaccio's debt to Cicero, Grudin and Grudin offer a fresh and thought-provoking contribution to Decameron studies." - Speculum
