Boccaccio needs to work on his summaries. "Ludolfo Rufolo is ruined and turns to piracy; he is captured by the Genoese and shipwrecked, but survives by clinging to a chest, full of precious jewels; finally, having been succoured by a woman on Corfu, he returns home rich." Exactly what it says on the tin, so why did I bother reading it?
Insomnia last night, so whiled away a few hours with Boccaccio, who goes down well enough. Am not sure I'm up for another 700 pages of these undistinguished stories, though.
