Summary
  • The Decameron, transposed to Naples from Boccaccio's Florence, is a cutting takedown of the pieties surrounding religion and sex
  • The Arabian nights follows the adventures of a slave girl as she rises to power over a great city. Around her revolve the stories of magic and lust, mystery and fantasy that derive from three cultures (Persia, Egypt and India) and range from the ninth century to the Renaissance
  • In the Canterbury tales, Pasolini's startling candor and ribald humor illuminate these classic tales of romance, deception, murder and lust
