Running Rings around the Reader (Decameron 1.3)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

_Decameron_ I, 3, well known for its "tale of the three rings," has been considered key for understanding author-reader relations in the _Decameron_. It has also been hailed by some readers as an instrument that we can use to promote tolerance of multiculturalism and/or openness of communication. Questioning these views, I argue that the view of author-reader relations here is less rosy, and that the author of the _Decameron_ may be running rings around us. In my view, the story is constructed to pose a trap for the reader (just as the Sultan poses a trap for the Jew in the story), since, although the reader receives multiple and contradictory pieces of evidence, she is still encouraged by the narrator (and later by critics) to ignore problems and contradictions. My presentation will include materials I use in teaching this novella to first-year students, advanced undergraduates, and graduate students.
