Certain problems link the study of Chaucer and the Italian Trecento with the study of literary form: What is the relation between diachronic formation and synchronic form? How do we make sense of texts that do not seem to be in sync with their original contexts of reception? Is there an ideal context of reception in which a work’s formation might be fully realized?

When Chaucer came into contact with Italian literary culture in the second half of the fourteenth century he was engaging with a productive, lively and highly varied tradition. Chaucer and Italian Textuality provides a new perspective on Chaucer and Italy by highlighting the materiality of his sources, reconstructing his textual, codicological horizon of expectation. The essays here take up two questions connected with the relationship between the Decameron and the Canterbury Tales. the first is the nature of the influence of Boccaccio on Chaucer and the second, perhaps more interesting than proving the link between the authors, is what happens to the way we read both works when we recognize the Decameron.
