At its worst the poem bogs down in a welter of catalogues and mechanical formulas: Boccaccio as Lydgate. And its brighter moments come almost as an escape from the higher design; the mythographical material onJove andJuno, for example, accumulates to form a marital drama that has thecomicvigor ofa Decameron novella.

L’amorosa visione

Amorosa visione. This is an allegorical poem in tercets, subdivided in fifty cantos and preceded by three tailed sonnets, modulated by the initial letters of each tercet, in such a way as to make of the whole work a spectacular acrostic. The main character of the tale is Boccaccio, actor-author of Dantean recollection, to whom a kindly lady appears in a dream, who takes him to a noble castle. The poet and his guide here visit two halls with frescoed walls. In the first are portrayed the great human appetites Wisdom, Fame, Wealth, Love ; the second is instead entirely dedicated to Fortune and is used as the occasion for an erudite and doctrinal digression.
