“I like this story. ANOTHER!”

“Which do you think was more gripping to read? His account of the plague or his stories?”

The man in question is Giovanni Boccaccio and I think it was more gripping and exciting to read about the plague. Although we don’t have any real proof that he was there, we certainly can gather from his writings that he had a good idea of it. He captured what it might’ve been like as a survivor of the plague and it was truly interesting. However, his stories were also good. They were intriguing and made you question his motives. And if that was the intent, then he certainly did a good job of it.
