According to Cesarani, in 1979 a German publisher had to pay compensation to the father of Anne Frank after printing the German edition of Irving's book, Hitler's War. Irving had claimed that Anne Frank's diary was a forgery. * Correct as written. Without consulting me, the Ullstein Verlag publishing firm, part of the pro-Israeli Axel Springer Group) made some unspecified payment to Otto Frank at his demand. I had already halted production and publication of the book for other reasons (tampering by Ullstein with my text). The German Bundeskriminalamt found that parts of the diary had been written in (post-war) ballpoint ink-paste, which made its authenticity problematic. My opinion on it now is ambivalent: it is unimportant, not a historical document of any value. Irving claims that according to his "research", the Holocaust is greatly exaggerated. * Correct. I think the figures have been magnified by an Order of Magnitude. Events in Auschwitz alone suggest that I am right:: here the figure has been effortlessly brought down from 4 million to 1 million, and now to even less. (He was recently quoted in the K-W Record as saying that the number of Jews who died in concentration camps was "of the order of 100,000 or more.") * Incorrect ...
In their Tuscan villas, seven young women and three young men tell tales to recreate the world they have lost, weaving a rich tapestry of comedy, tragedy, ribaldry and farce. Boccaccio' s Decameron recasts the storytelling heritage of the ancient and medieval worlds into perennial forms that inspired writers from Chaucer and Shakespeare down to our own day. Boccaccio makes the incredible believable, with detail so sharp we can look straight into the lives of people who lived six hundred years ago. His Decameron hovers between the fading glories of an aristocratic past - the Crusades, the Angevins, the courts of France, the legendary East - and the colourful squalor of contemporary life, where wives deceive husbands, friars and monks pursue fleshly ends, and natural instincts fight for satisfaction. Here are love and jealousy, passion and pride - and a shrewd calculation of profit and loss which heralds the rise of a dynamic merchant class. These stories show us early capitalism during a moment of crisis and revelation. In Florence, plague has carried off one hundred thousand people. 1348. The Black Death is sweeping through Europe.
One of Chaucer' s most fruitful sources for the Canterbury Tales, Boccaccio' s work artfully combines the essential ingredients of narrative: fate and desire, crises and quick-thinking. The Decameron (c. 1351) was written in the wake of the Black Death, a shattering epidemic which had shaken Florence' s confident entrepreneurial society to its core. In a country villa outside the city, ten young noble men and women who have escaped the plague decide to tell each other stories. Boccaccio' s skill as a dramatist is masterfully displayed in this virtuoso performance of one hundred tales, vivid portraits of people from all stations in life, with plots which revel in a bewildering variety of human reactions.
|The Spa Decameron|
Starting with the Trophy wife' s tale: her spell in a Greek prison has left her in serious need of a makeover; the Brain Surgeon' s tale: of twins and mistaken identity; the Judge' s tale: of the sex change which allowed him to judge the pleasures of the bedchamber from both male and female perspectives. The manicurist, the public speaker, the journalist, the company director, the ex vicar' s wife, the screenwriter, all share their stories, ending with the stepmother' s tale, a reversal of Cinderella' s fate, with the stepmother as victim. . . Sparkling, witty, always compassionate and occasionally libidinous, Fay Weldon' s new novel recalls Boccaccio' s late medieval masterwork, The Decameron.
