"...a book rich in enlightening analysis of visual detail and eager to assess the symbolic weight of such intangibles as color and form..." Choice "Ricketts has set out to write an ambitious book, covering some six centuries and a variety of literary and visual forms. Its topic is important and its approach is potentially illuminating." Envoi ...very insightful analysis, especially of the visual art, which ranges from the paintings of Giotto and Bruegel and some anonymous fifteenth-century French manuscript illustrations to Pasolini's film, Decamerone." Studies in Iconography "As rich and multi-faceted as the works of Boccaccio are, it is not surprising that they have been the impetus for hundreds of studies over several centuries."
