THE STORY OF NASTAGIO DEGLI
ONESTI, Part 3
Analysing the story...
Boccaccio had opposite views to Dante, indeed in Dante's masterpiece, The Divine Comedy,people that squander and commit suicide are condemned forever. Instead in this novella even if Nastagio squanders all his money to win over his love interest and he once tried to commit suicide, in the end he doesn't get condemned.
The 8th novella of the 5th day of the Decameron by Boccaccio
The protagonist. He is wealthy and wants to marry the daughter of a nobleman. In order to gain her hand in marriage he spends all his money on gifts.
Nastagio's love interest-
A highborn girl. Daughter of Messer Paolo Traversaro. She doesn't love Nastagio back.
The undead knight. He shows Nastagio what happens if a girl doesn't love her lover back.
A damsel that didn't love the knight back. Now she is cursed and has to run forever more from her lover and his dogs.
The knights' sword is the same one that he used to commit suicide.
