Save Your Precious Heart: A Letter from Lisabetta To Caterina
Opening Paragraph|The Decameron, written by Boccaccio in the 14th century, explores ten characters as they escape the plague in Florence and enter into another reality. This reality includes tales of love, tragedy, pranks, fortune, and more. These stories, ten being told each day, for ten days, represent the human experience and include characters that represent our multi-faceted nature as humans interacting with ourselves, each other, and the natural world. Though written centuries ago, this piece of literature remains relevant in our modern world, as we, the readers, are able to interact with the text, bringing our own perspectives and experiences to the characters and stories within.
