9781331434108: The New Decameron, Vol. 3 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The New Decameron, Vol. 3

Along a dusty road in northern France a lean, scarecrow figure ambled unconcernedly. It was a bright summer day and the sun shone hotly through dust-laden air on stretches of ploughland, caked to the semblance of dry porridge, on the grey untidy grass that fringed the road, on the indifferent isolation of a few gawky trees, pointing irregularly to right and left their bushy top-knots at the hard blue sky.

The ambling figure whistled as he walked - tunes from The Mikado and from Veronique - while at his heels bundled a black, exhausted dog whose family tree had years ago been chopped for firewood, leaving along the air a doubtful scent of promiscuous marriage and bends sinister.

Noting to his right a small coppice that promised shade and a soft resting-place on this so arid afternoon, the tramp struck off the road and, making his way over a field of short grass starred with scabious, entered the shadows of the little wood.
