Review:

“Wayne A. Rebhorn succeeds in retaining the quiddities of Giovanni Boccaccio’s original Decameron while rendering a medieval Italian text intelligible to the modern reader of English. His scrupulously detailed translation infuses the text with fresh energy and delicately preserves Boccaccio’s titillating use of language.”
- Heliotropia

“A strikingly modern translation of Boccaccio’s medieval Italian classic. . . . Rebhorn’s translation is eminently readable. His translation’s accessibility allows the timeless humanity of the work to shine through.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Probably the dirtiest great book in the Western canon. . . . Rebhorn’s translation of The Decameron is a thoughtful piece of work, with populist intentions. . . . If you want the true, mixed, fourteenth-century book that Boccaccio wrote, choose Rebhorn.”
- Joan Acocella, The New Yorker
