    Yay – someone actually realises that the McWilliams translation is way way way superior to any other version of The Decameron. Too many lesser talents have tried to give us the Decameron in English – but Prof. McWilliams’ translation continues to rule.

    I love this book – such a great collection of stories, such a good idea having the people tell their stories as they run from the plague. This is really good. Great library too.
