Boccaccio (1313-1375) was an Italian writer of both verse and prose. He wrote The Decameron over a period of ten years, and is also the author of the Elegia di Madonna Fiametta, which has been described as 'the first modern psychological novel', and the narrative poem Filostrato, on which Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde is based.
