Boccaccio's Decameron


some text


Emilia is a lover of attention, and in some ways can be seen and Dioneo's counterpart. She is preoccupied with her own beauty, and often dances and sings at the end of her stories, and her behavior draws the annoyance of some of the other women. In many ways she can be seen as Dioneo's female counterpart. Emilia is in charge of Day Nine, but she perscribes no single theme for the day.
