Synopsis

Short works known for their humour and ribaldry, the fabliaux were comic or satirical tales told by wandering minstrels in medieval France. This new and provocative interpretation examines the formal similarities between the Decameron's tale of wit, wisdom and practical jokes and the popular 13th-century fabliaux.
