Title : La vergine e l'eremita: Una lettura intertestuale della novella di Alibech ("Decameron" III. 10) [Boccaccio's tales burlesque hagiographic conventions, including the story of Mary of Egypt; the hermit's mortifications, in the tale of Alibech, lead, not to sanctity, but to pride and a fall; and the virgin Alibech finds sexual pleasure and worldly wisdom in the wilderness; the poet explores in this tale the relationship between the mystical and the erotic].
