Boccaccio's writings were influential throughout the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, affecting authors such as Chaucer and Shakespeare, and since then scholarship on Boccaccio has flourished. This bibliography provides a record of editions and adaptations of Boccaccio in English, English-language criticism of Boccaccio, Italian editions of Boccaccio published in English-speaking countries, English-language criticism, and foreign language criticism published by English-speaking authors. The first part of the volume lists editions of Boccaccio's works, beginning with his minor writings and ending with his masterpiece, the "Decameron". The second part lists adaptations and parallels, while the third is a bibliography of criticism. In each section, works are arranged chronologically, so the reader can trace the response to Boccaccio over time. To facilitate access to entries, the work includes seven indexes. Annotations indicate the scope or intention of critical works and the relationship of editions to one another.
