Summary
"Boccaccio's Naked Muse examines a writer who cast himself as the apostle of a new humanistic faith, one that would honour God by exalting his creation. In this study, Tobias Foster Gittes argues that Boccaccio did not simply reproduce Golden Age schemes in his works, but rather subtly altered and adapted them to produce a model of human beatitude more suited to his conviction that cultural achievement and human dignity are indissolubly linked."--BOOK JACKET
