    I'm not prejudiced but really...Boccacio doesn't belong here! Yes, he's an innovator, one of the utmost revolutionists of the novel and italian literature, why, world literature! ! Yet, he's not a poet with the pure sense as Dante(though I must read the second volume of Decameron! I just adore it!)

Theodore and Honoria

Of all the cities in Romanian lands,
The chief and most renowned Ravenna stands;
Adorned in ancient times with arms and arts,
And rich inhabitants with generous hearts.
But Theodore the brave, above the rest,
With gifts of fortune and of nature blessed,
The foremost place for wealth and honour held,
And all in feats of chivalry excelled.
