    Even had Marguerite de Navarre not written The Heptameron, the world of letters would be deeply indebted to her for her patronage of Rabelais and his genius novels about the giants Gargantua and Pantagruel As it is, we owe her even for her assemblage of a treasury of bawdy tales a cycle which is consciously modeled upon Boccaccio s Decameron.Ten travelers, five women and five men, are delayed in their travels when a rainstorm washes out a bridge While they await its rebuilding, they entertain themselves by telling stories The bridge will take ten days to rebuild, and they agree that each of them will tell one story each day They agree to a few ground rules for their storytelling the stories must be true identities of guilty parties tend to be protected, but we know who they really are wink, wink, nudge, nudge and the stories must not be derived from professional tellers of tales What we overhear along with the monks hosting our traveling party are 72 stories the book was never finished of bawd, debauchery, faithlessness and faithfulness, lust, rape, love, women and men, cuckoldry, decrepit and unruly monks and priests, honour and chastity, and in general The Great Battle of the Sexes, Sixteenth Century Edition.Not to be missed is the framing tale of the ten travelers Their stories are chosen to bolster their own views about the relations of the sexes this one to demonstrate th...

    Part of my incentive for reading books like these for my own pleasure this copy of mine, purchased at a library sale, has a sticker from being checked out of a college reserves for a Medieval and Romance class is encountering this chunk of the canon on my own terms before some future class sinks its claws into it I wouldn t say that all first meetings with a text that occur in a classroom are doomed Hamlet in my senior year of high school is a prime example , but enough of my past has been littered with such misguided ruination that I prefer to take what I can get while I still have the time Also, I will not deny that another part of the urge is to be able to say yes indeed I have read the thing and can discuss it with you to the full extent of text and capabilities so giving me that sidelong look of snickering disbelief will only leave you with a brainfull of hurt, so Both conscientious autodidacticism and personal pride work out in the end.I must admit to two things in regards to this work One, were it not for the intermissions where the storytellers debate among themselves over the previous story s merits, accuracy, a...

    Marguerite de Navarre was the sister of Francis I of France and so was the grandmother of Henri de Navarre, and the great aunt of Marguerite, better known as la reine Margot from the Dumas novel and far fabulous film.Although her authorship is disputed, the Heptameron is usually attributed to her, and first appeared in print in the mid 1500s Inspired by Boccaccio s The Decameron, this uses a similar framework of a group of noble French men and women trapped and taking refuge in a flood in order to amuse themselves, they take it in turns to tell a series of stories each day on a set theme.Bawdy, erotic, sweet, witty and funny, these tales chart a verbal battle of the sexes, and the story tellers reveal and conceal their own erotic fears and fantasies Slightly reminiscent, also, of Chaucer, the stories are full of tricky wives, adulterous husbands, corrupt churchmen and nobles either getting away with it, or their come uppance, depending on the ideology of the teller More disturbing is the number of stories which centre on rape and sexual violence against women, often depicted as merely excessive passion o...

    Well, it turns out that one of my favorite literary forms is what the editor of the Penguin edition of Jan Potocki s novel The Manuscript Found in Saragossa has dubbed The novel in frames This form would be a collection of tales recounted specifically, usually stories bearing traces of an oral tradition they were called novellas in the Middle Ages when this form was most prevalent within some sort of frame story pulling the disparate tales collected into a cohesive narrative whole of one type or another Apuleius Metamorphoses AKA The Golden Ass is perhaps the oldest Occidental novel in frames and The 1,001 Nights and Giovanni Boccaccio s The Decameron are certainly the most well know However, Potocki s clever pseudo Gothic extravaganza and Marguerite de Navarre s study of the concept and practice of love and male female relations in early 16th century France, Spain, and Italy are both lesser known but non the less lovely and worthwhile exemplars of the minor Occidental tradition of the form.The most interesting element, for me, of The Heptameron is how well it exploits the proliferation of vo...

    The Heptameron is an extremely important historical document and great work of literature The author was the Queen of Navarre and mother of Jeanne d Albret who will become the Queen of France and will play a major role in the success of the Calvinist Reformation in France From the Heptameron one gains tremendous insight into the values and social attitudes of the aristocratic classes that were about to wreck havoc in Europe.Marguerite de Navarre was a serious minded woman who viewed the conventions of her time with a critical eye Unlike the Boccaccio s Decameron on which it was modelled, the Heptameron is only intermittently funny Marguerite finds the corruption and lechery of the clergy reprehensible She cannot laugh at it all the time She has to attack it outright on occasions Similarly, she occasionally sees humour arising from the powerlessness of women in her society but unlike Boccaccio she will not simply laugh when she describes women who use deceit to get around their male masters She wants things to change and believes they can With such a mother we can understand why her daught...

    This is not a fast read at all, there are V 5 long volumes with many sections but completely worth it It was meant to be 100 stories but Marguerite de Navarre died and ergo there are 72 stories and I shall salute you if you ve read them all The dialogue between the narrators are absolutely hilarious The morals are ridiculous such as a woman s fervor might kills her with fever should she be too chaste or a warning to not test a lover in too difficult a test or you might lose him These are tales that explore the avarice of earthly desire and the virtues of the human heart, both with their recompense Some stories are just downright hilarious like Tale V from the Volume I 1 , Grey Friar Deceivi...
