The Most Pleasant and Delectable Questions of Love
The Most Pleasant and Delectable Questions of Love is a translation of 13 chapters of one of Boccaccio's longer works. In these chapters, a group of young people have gone to the country for the day. One of the young women is chosen "The Queen of Love." Each young person tells a love story and poses a question about love. The group answers; there is no right or wrong. But the final arbiter, "The Queen of Love," holds the answers.
Giovanni Boccaccio (1313 - 1375) was an Italian writer, poet, correspondent of Petrarch and an important Renaissance humanist. Boccaccio wrote a number of notable works, including The Decameron and On Famous Women. He wrote his imaginative literature mostly in the Italian vernacular, as well as other works in Latin and is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot.
