Most people have never read the 14 th century Florentine writer’s most famous work “The Decameron,” but they have read modern authors who did and were inspired by the book -- short, earthy, bawdy, seemingly modern tales of women . Boccaccio’s The Decameron is today acknowledged as a masterpiece of medieval literature, and its influence can be seen in the work of other great writers such as Chaucer and Shakespeare. Yet, the intellectual elite of his time rejected his masterpiece when it was first published, overlooking his wit and ingenuity and choosing instead to decry.
