1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  Grant it (great love) mine anguish to beguile.
2.  Now by this meanes, he grew great in the grace of King Pedro, whoreplanted him in all the goods and honours which he had before, withverie high and eminent authority. Hereunto the Ambassador added,that hee was entertayned with extraordinary grace, and delivery ofpublike joy and exaltation, when his Wife and Sonne were knowne tobe living, of whom no tydings had at any time bene heard, since thehoure of his surprizall. Moreover, that a swift winged Bark was nowsent thither (upon the happy hearing of this newes) well furnishedwith noble Gentlemen, to attend till their returning backe. We needeto make no doubt concerning the tydings brought by this Ambassadour,nor of the Gentlemens welcome, thus sent to Madame Beritola andGeoffrey; who before they would sit downe at the Table, saluted MesserConrado and his kinde Lady (on the behalfe of Henriet) for all thegreat graces extended to her and her Sonne, with promise of any thing,lying in the power of Henriet, to rest continually at their command.The like they did to Signior Gasparino (whose liberall favours cameunlooked for) with certaine assurance, that when Henriet shouldunderstand what he had done for his other Sonne, the Poore expelled,there would be no defaylance of reciprocall courtesies.
3.  Oh poore infortunate Lovers, whose Starres were so inauspicious toyou, as to finish both your mortall lives, and fervent love, inlesse limitation then a dayes space. How to censure of your deaths,and happines to ensue thereon, by an accident so strange andinevitable: it is not within the compasse of my power, but to hope thebest, and so I leave you. But yet concerning Simonida her selfe, inthe common opinion of us that remaine living: her true vertue andinnocency (though Fortune was otherwise most cruell to her) wouldnot suffer her to sinke under the testimony of Strambo, Lagina,Atticciato, and Malagevole, being but carders of wool, or perhaps ofmeaner condition; a happier course was ordained for her, to passeclearely from their infamous imputation, and follow her Pasquino, inthe very same manner of death, and with such a speedy expedition.
4.  No more remained to be spoken by Madame Eliza, but the cunning ofthe Magnifico, being much commended by all the company: the Queenecommanded Madame Fiammetta, to succede next in order with one of herNovels, who (smiling) made answer that shee would, and began thus.Gracious Ladies, mee thinkes wee have spoken enough already,concerning our owne Citie, which as it aboundeth copiously in allcommodities, so is it an example also to every convenient purpose. Andas Madam Eliza hath done, by recounting occasions happening in anotherWorld, so must we now leape a little further off, even so far asNaples, to see how one of those Saint-like Dames that nicely seemes toshun loves allurings, was guided by the good spirit to a friend ofhers, and tasted of the fruite, before she knew the flowers. Asufficient warning for you to apprehend before hand what may followafter, and to let you see beside, that when an error is committed, howto bee discreete in keeping it from publike knowledge.
5.  WHEREIN IS DISPLAYED, THE APPARANT FOLLY OF JEALOUSIE: AND THE
6.  THE TENTH DAY, THE TENTH NOVELL

计划指导

1.  Upon the clamour and noise of the Lady, the Courtiers quicklyflocked thither; and, as lies soone winne beleefe in hasty opinions,upon any silly or shallow surmise: so did her accusation passe forcurrant, and the Counts advancement being envied by many, made hishonest carriage (in this case) the more suspected. In hast and maddingfury, they ran to the Counts houses, to arrest his person, and carryhim to prison: but when they could not finde him, they raced hisgoodly buildings downe to the ground, and used all shamefullviolence to them. Now, as ill newes sildome wants a speedyMessenger; so, in lesse space then you will imagine, the King andDolphin heard thereof in the Campe,-and were therewith so highlyoffended, that the Count had a sodaine and severe condemnation, allhis progeny being sentenced with perpetuall exile, and promises ofgreat and bountifull rewards, to such as could bring his body alive ordead.
2.  Among many other evill conditions, very frequent and familiar in herhusband Tofano; he tooke a great delight in drinking, which not onlyhe held to be a commendable quality, but was alwaies so oftensolicited thereto: that Cheta her selfe began to like and allow itin him, feeding his humor so effectually, with quaffing and carowsing,that (at any time when she listed) she could make him bowsie beyondeall measure: and leaving him sleeping in this drunkennesse, wouldalwayes get her selfe to bed. By helpe heereof, she compassed thefirst familiarity with her friend, yea, divers times after, asoccasion served: and so confidently did she builde on her husbandsdrunkennesse, that not onely shee adventured to bring her friendhome into her owne house; but also would as often go to his, which wassome-what neere at hand, and abide with him there, the most part ofthe night season.While Cheta thus continued on these amorous courses, it fortuned,that her slye suspitious husband, beganne to perceive, that thoughshee drunke very much with him, yea, untill he was quite spent andgone: yet she remained fresh and sober still, and therby imaginedstrange matters, that he being fast asleepe, his wife then tookeadvantage of his drowsinesse, and mightand so forth. Beeing desirousto make experience of this his distrust, hee returned home at night(not having drunke any thing all the whole day) dissembling both byhis words and behaviour, as if he were notoriously drunke indeede.Which his Wife constantly beleeving, saide to her selfe: That heehad now more neede of sleepe, then drinke; getting him immediatelyinto his warme bed; and then going downe the staires againe, softlywent out of doores unto her Friends house, as formerly she had used todo, and there shee remained untill midnight.
3.  After that the King had concluded his Novell, there remained nonenow but Dioneus to tell the last: which himselfe confessing, and theKing commaunding him to proceede, hee beganne in this manner. Somany miseries of unfortunate Love, as all of you have already related,hath not onely swolne your eyes with weeping, but also made sickeour hearts with sighing: yea (Gracious Ladies) I my selfe finde myspirits not meanly afflicted thereby. Wherefore the whole day hathbene very irkesome to me, and I am not a little glad, that it is soneere ending. Now, for the better shutting it up altogether, I wouldbe very loath to make an addition, of any more such sad andmournfull matter, good for nothing but onely to feede melanchollyhumor, and from which (I hope) my faire Starres will defend me.Tragicall discourse, thou art no fit companion for me, I willtherefore report a Novell which may minister a more joviall kinde ofargument, unto whose Tales that must be told to morrow, and with theexpiration of our present Kings reigne, to rid us of allheart-greeving hereafter.
4.  When the time was come, that the Christians were to make theirpassage, and wonderfull great preparations, in all places performed:Signiour Thorello, notwithstanding the teares and intreaties of hisWife, determined to be one in so woorthy and honourable a voyage:and having made his provision ready, nothing wanting but mounting onHorsebacke, to go where he should take shipping; to his Wife (whomhe most intirely affected) thus hee spake. Madame, I goe as thou seestin this famous Voyage, as well for mine Honour, as also the benefiteof my soule; all our goodes and possessions, I commit to thyvertuous care. And because I am not certaine of my returning backeagaine, in regard of a thousand accidents which may happen, in sucha Countrey as I goe unto: I desire onely but one favour of thee,whatsoever daunger shall befall mee; Namely, when any certaine tydingsshall be brought you of my death; to stay no longer before thysecond marriage, but one yeare, one month, and one day; to begin onthis day of my departing from thee.
5.  This sight was so irkesome to Rinaldo, that, being overcom withextreame rage, hee could hardly containe from running on them, witha violent intent to kill them both: but feare of his owne lifecaused his forbearance, meaning to be revenged by some better way.Such was the heate of his spleene and fury, as, setting aside allrespect of his owne shame: he would needs prosecute the rigour ofthe deadly Edict, which he held lawfull for him to do, although itextended to the death of his Wife. Heereupon, having witnessessufficient, to approove the guiltinesse of her offence: a day beingappointed (without desiring any other counsell) he went in person toaccuse her, and required justice against her.
6.  PASSE, UNDER THE COUNTERFEIT CLOAKE OF RELIGION

推荐功能

1.  If the former Novels had made all the Ladies sad and sighe, thislast of Dioneus as much delighted them, as restoring them to theirformer jocond humor, and banishing Tragicall discourse for ever. TheKing perceiving that the Sun was neere setting, and his governmentas neere ending, with many kinde and courteous speeches, excusedhimselfe to the Ladies, for being the motive of such an argument, asexpressed the infelicity of poore Lovers. And having finished hisexcuse, up he rose, taking the Crown of Lawrell from off his ownehead, the Ladies awaiting on whose head he pleased next to set it,which proved to be the gracious Lady Fiammetta, and thus he spake.Here I place this Crowne on her head, that knoweth better then anyother, how to comfort this faire assembly to morrow, for the sorrowwhich they have this day endured.
2.  The Novell delivered, by Madame Neiphila, seemed so pleasing toall the Ladies; as they could not refraine from hearty laughter,beside much liberality of speech. Albeit the King did oftentimesurge silence, and commanded Pamphilus to follow next. So, whenattention was admitted, Pamphilus began in this order. I am ofopinion, faire Ladies, that there is not any matter, how uneasie ordoubtfull soever it may seeme to be; but the man or woman thataffecteth fervently, dare boldly attempt, and effectuallyaccomplish. And this perswasion of mine, although it hath beenesufficiently approved, by many of our passed Novels: Yetnotwithstanding, I shall make it much apparent to you, by a presentdiscourse of mine owne. Wherein I have occasion to speake of a Lady,to whom Fortune was more favourable, then either reason orjudgement, could give direction. In which regard, I would not adviseany of you, to entertaine so high an imagination of minde, as totracke her footsteps of whom I am now to speake: because Fortunecontaineth not alwayes one and the same disposition, neither can allmens eyes be blinded after one manner. And so proceed we to our Tale.
3.  We have alwayes in this noble Society of ours, a Captaine, and twoCounsellors, which are changed at every six months end. And now atChristmas next (so neere drawing on) Buffalmaco shal be electedCaptaine, and my selfe one of the Counsellers, for so it is alreadyagreed on, and orderly set downe. Now, he that is Captain, may doemuch more then any other can, and appoint matters as himselfepleaseth. Wherefore I thinke it very expedient, that so soone aspossibly you may, you procure acquaintance with Buffalmaco, entreatinghim with all respective courtesie. Hee is a man, who when heperceyveth you to be so wonderfully Wise and discreete, he will beimmediatly in love with you: so, when you have your best sensesabout you, and your richest wearing Garments on (alwayes remembred,that your acquaintance first be fully confirmed) then never feare tourge your request, for he can have no power at all to denie you;because I have already spoken of you to him, and find him to standaffected unto you verie intirely: thus when you have begunne thebusinesse, leave me to deale with him in the rest.
4.  Hereupon, he secretly called Jehannot before him, examining himparticularly of all his passed life, and finding (by most manifestarguments) that his name was truly Geoffrey, and the eldest son ofHenriet Capece, he spake thus to him. Jehannot, thou knowest how greatthe injuries are that thou hast done me, and my deere daughter; gentlyintreating thee (as became an honest servant) that thou shouldestalwayes have bene respective of mine honor, and all that appertaineunto me. There are many noble Gentlemen, who sustaining the wrongwhich thou hast offred me, they would have procured thy shamefulldeath, which pitty and compassion will not suffer in me. Whereforeseeing (as thou informest me) that thou art honourably derived both byfather and mother, I will give end to all thy anguishes, even when thyselfe art so pleased, releasing thee from that captivity wherein Ihave so long kept thee, and in one instant, reduce thine honor andmine into compleat perfection. As thou knowest my daughter Spina, whomthou hast embraced as a friend (although far unfitting for thee, orher) is a widdow, and her marriage is both great and good; what hermanners and conditions are, thou indifferently knowest, and art notignorant of her father and mother: concerning thine owne estate, asnow I purpose not to speake any thing. Therefore, when thou wilt, I amdetermined, that whereas thou hast immodestly affected her, sheshall become thy honest wife, and accepting thee as my sonne, toremaine with me so long as you both please.
5.   After some part of the night was overpast, they divided themselvesinto two bands, one to guard Isabellaes Dorter doore, the other tocarry newes to the Abbesse, and knocking at her Closet doore, saide.Rise quickely Madame, and use all the hast you may, for we haveseene a man enter our Sister Isabellaes Dorter, and you may take herin bed with him. The Lady Abbesse, who (the very same night) had thecompany of a lusty Priest in bed with her selfe, as oftentimesbefore she had, and he being alwayes brought thither in a Chest:hearing these tidings, and fearing also, lest the Nunnes hastieknocking at her doore, might cause it to fly open, and so (by theirentrance) have her owne shame discovered: arose very hastily, andthinking she had put on her plaited vaile, which alwayes she walkedwith in the night season, and used to tearme her Psalter; she putthe Priests breeches upon her head, and so went away in all hastwith them, supposing them verily to be her Psalter: but making fastthe Closet doore with her keye, because the Priest should not bediscovered.
6.  The King understood immediately, the reason of this so suddenalteration, and said. In good faith Bernardo, the world would sustainea great maine and imperfection, by the losse of thy faire daughter;wherefore, we will goe our selfe in person to visite her. So, with twoof his Lords onely, and the Father, he ascended to the MaidesChamber and being entred, he went to the Beds side, where she sate,somewhat raised, in expectation of his comming, and taking her bythe hand, he said. Faire Lisana, how commeth this to passe? Youbeing so faire a Virgin, yong, and in the delicacy of your daies,which should be the chiefest comfort to you, will you suffer yourselfe to be over-awed with sickenesse? Let us intreat you, that (forour sake) you will be of good comfort, and thereby recover your healththe sooner, especially, when it is requested by a King, who is sorryto see so bright a beauty sicke, and would helpe it, it consisted inhis power.

1.  But after he had dwelt long enough upon these thoughts, he turnedhim selfe to Signior Neri, and demanded of him, what Damosels theywere. Sir (answered Neri) they are my Daughters, both brought into theworld at one birth, and Twinnes, the one being named Genevera thefaire, and the other Isotta the amiable. The King began againe tocommend them both, and gave him advise to get them both married:wherein he excused himselfe, alleadging, that he wanted power to doeit. At the same time instant, no other service remaining to be broughtto the table, except Fruit and Cheese, the two Damosels returnedagaine, attyred in goodly Roabes of Carnation Sattin, formed after theTurkish fashion, carrying two fayre Silver dishes in their hands,filled with divers delicate Fruites, such as the season then afforded,setting them on the Table before the King. Which being done, theyretyred a little backeward, and with sweet melodious voyces, sung aditty, beginning in this manner.
2.  Gasparuolo turning to his Wife, demanded; Whether it was so, orno? She beholding the witnesse standing by, who was also present ather receyving them: durst not make deniall, but thus answered. IndeedeHusband, I received two hundred Crownes of the Gentleman, and neverremembred, to acquaint you therewith since your comming home: buthereafter I will be made no more your receiver, except I carried aquicker memory. Then saide Gasparuolo: Signior Gulfardo, I finde youalwaies a most honest Gentleman, and will be readie at any time, todoe you the like, or a farre greater kindnesse; depart at yourpleasure, and feare not the crossing of my Booke. So Gulfardo wentaway merily contented, and Ambrosia was served as she justlymerited; she paying the price of her owne leudnesse to her Husband,which she had a more covetous intent to keepe, questionlesse, notcaring how many like lustfull matches shee coulde make, to be soliberally rewarded, if this had succeeded to her minde: whereas heshewed himselfe wise and discreete, in paying nothing for hispleasure, and requiting a covetous queane in her kinde.
3.  Soone after, Calandrino started up, and perceiving by their loudespeaking, that they talked of nothing which required secretCounsell: he went into their company (the onely thing which Masodesired) and holding on still the former Argument; Calandrino wouldneeds request to know, in what place these precious stones were tobe found, which had such excellent vertues in them? Maso made answere,that the most of them were to be had in Berlinzona, neere to theCity of Bascha, which was in the Territory of a Countrey, calledBengodi, where the Vines were bound about with Sawcidges, a Goosewas sold for a penny, and the Goslings freely given in to boote. Therewas also an high mountaine wholly made of Parmezane, grated Cheese,whereon dwelt people, who did nothing else but make Mocharones andRavivolies, boyling them with broth of Capons, and afterward hurledthem all about, to whosoever can or will catch them. Neere to thismountaine runneth a faire River, the whole streame being pure whiteBastard, none such was ever sold for any money, and without one dropof water in it.
4、  At his departure, he commanded them that had the charge of thisexecution, to proceede no further, untill they heard more from theKing, to whom he gallopped immediately, and although he beheld himto bee very angerly moved; yet he spared not to speake in thismaner. Sir, wherin have those poore young couple offended you, thatare so shamefully to be burnt at Palermo? The King told him: wheretothe Admirall (pursuing still his purpose) thus replyed. Beleeve meSir, if true love be an offence, then theirs may be termed to beone; and albeit it deserved death, yet farre be it from thee toinflict it on them: for as faults doe justly require punishment, sodoe good turnes as equally merit grace and requitall. Knowest thouwhat and who they are, whom thou hast so dishonourably condemned tothe fire? Not I, quoth the King. Why then I will tell thee, answeredthe Admirall, that thou mayest take the better knowledge of them,and forbeare hereafter, to be so over violently transported withanger.

      The second hermit advised her as the first; and faring farther shecame to the cell of a young hermit, a very pious and righteous man,whose name was Rustico. To him she repeated her mission. Willing toput his resolution to so great a test, he forebore to send her away,and took her into his cell. At nightfall he made her a bed ofpalm-leaves, and bade her lie down to rest.

      After they had sate an indifferent while with her, they returnedhome to their lodging, where Titus being alone in his chamber, beganto bethink himselfe on her, whose perfections had so powerfullypleased him: and the more he entred into this consideration, thefiercer he felt his desires enflamed, which being unable to quench, byany reasonable perswasions, after hee had vented foorth infinitesighes, thus he questioned with himselfe.Most unhappie Titus as thou art, whether doost thou transport thineunderstanding, love, and hope? Dooest thou not know as well by thehonourable favours, which thou hast received of Chremes and his house,as also the intire amity betweene thee and Gisippus (unto whom faireSophronia is the afflanced friend) that thou shouldst holde her in thelike reverent respect, as if shee were thy true borne Sister? Darestthou presume to fancie her? Whether shall beguiling Love allurethee, and vaine immaging hopes carrie thee? Open the eyes of thybetter understanding, and acknowledge thy selfe to bee a mostmiserable man. Give way to reason, bridle thine intemperate appetites,reforme all irregulare desires, and guide thy fancy to a place ofbetter direction. Resist thy wanton and lascivious will in thebeginning, and be master of thy selfe, while thou hast opportunity,for that which thou aimest at, is neyther reasonable nor honest. Andif thou wert assured to prevaile upon this pursuite, yet thououghtst to avoide it, if thou hast any regard of true friendship,and the duty therein justly required. What wilt thou do then Titus?Fly from this inordinate affection, if thou wilt be reputed to be aman of sensible judgement.

       Returne wee now to the Pyrates, which at Ponzo seized on the smallBarke wherein Madame Beritola was brought thither, and carriedthence away, without any sight or knowledge of her. With such otherspoyles as they had taken, they shaped their course for Geneway, andthere (by consent of the Patrones of the Galley) made a division oftheir booties. It came to passe, that (among other things) the Nursethat attended on Beritola, and the two Children with her, fell tothe share of one Messer Gastarino d'Oria, who sent them together tohis owne House, there to be employed in service as Servants. The Nurseweeping beyond measure for the losse of her Ladie, and bemoaning herowne miserable Fortune, whereinto shee was now fallen with the twoyoung Laddes; after long lamenting, which shee found utterlyfruitlesse and to none effect, though she was used as a servant withthem, and being but a very poore woman, yet was shee wise anddiscreetly advised. Wherefore, comforting both her selfe and them sowell as she could, and considering the depth of their disaster, sheeconceited thus, that if the Children should be knowne, it mightredound to their greater danger, and shee be no way advantagedthereby.

      Perswade thy selfe then Bernardo, that what women may accomplishin secret, they will rarely faile to doe: or if they abstaine, it isthrough feare and folly. Wherefore, hold it for a certaine rule,that that is onely chaste, that never was solicited personally, orif she endured any such suite, either shee answered yea, or no. Andalbeit I know this to be true, by many infallible and naturallreasons, yet could I not speak so exactly as I doe, if I had not triedexperimentally, the humours and affections of divers Women.

      Walking from one roome to another, thorough every part of the house;and no wall escaping without diligent surveying; on a day, when herHusband was absent from home, she espyed in a corner very secret, anindifferent cleft in the Wall; which though it yeelded no full view onthe other side, yet she plainly perceived it to be an handsomeChamber, and grew more then halfe perswaded, that either it might bethe Chamber of Philippo (for so was the neighbouring yong Gentlemannamed) or else a passage guiding thereto. A Chambermaid of hers, whocompassioned her case very much; made such observance, by herMistresses direction, that she found it to be Philippoes bedChamber, and where alwayes he used to lodge alone. By often visitingthis rift or chinke in the Wall, especially when the Gentleman wasthere; and by throwing in little stones, flowers, and such likethings, which fell still in his way as he walked: so farre sheprevailed, that he stepping to the chinke, to know from whence theycame; shee called softly to him, who knowing her voyce, there they hadsuch private conference together, as was not any way displeasing toeither. So that the chinke being made a little larger; yet so, as itcould not be easily discerned: their mouthes might meete with kissestogether, and their hands folded each in other; but nothing else to beperformed, for continuall feare of her jelous husband.

       In this manner, Bruno and Buffalmaco (who had the managing of thisamorous businesse) made a meere Gregory of poore Calandrino, causinghim somtimes to send her, one while a pretty peece of Ivory, then afaire wrought purse, and a costly paire of knives, with other suchlike friendly tokens: bringing him backe againe, as in requital ofthem, counterfetted Rings of no valew, Bugles and bables, which heesteemed as matters of great moment. Moreover, at divers close andsodain meetings, they made him pay for many dinners and suppers,amounting to indifferent charges, onely to be careful in thefurtherance of his lovesuit, and to conceale it from his wife.Having worne out three or foure months space in this fond andfrivolous manner, without any other successe then as hath benedeclared; and Calandrino perceiving, that the worke undertaken byhim and his fellowes, grew very neere uppon the finishing, which wouldbarre him of any longer resorting thither: hee began to solicite Brunomore importunately, then all the while before he hadde done.

      Being aboord the Carrack, they had a Cabine and small bedconveniently allowed them, where they slept together, that theymight the better be reputed as man and wife; for, to passeotherwise, would have beene very dangerous to them both. Andquestionlesse, their faithfull promise made at Rhodes to Antiochus,sickenesse on the Sea, and mutuall respect they had of each otherscredit, was a constant restraint to all wanton desires, and a motiverather to incite Chastitie, then otherwise, and so (I hope) you areperswaded of them. But howsoever, the windes blewe merrily, theCarracke sayled lustily, and (by this time) they are arrived at Baffa,where the Cyprian Merchant dwelt, and where shee continued a longwhile with him, no one knowing otherwise, but that shee was his wifeindeede.Now it fortuned, that there arrived also at the same Baffa (aboutsome especiall occasions of his) a Gentleman whose name was Antigonus,well stept into yeeres, and better stored with wisedome then wealth:because by medling in many matters, while hee followed the serviceof the King of Cyprus, Fortune had beene very adverse to him. Thisancient Gentleman, passing (on a day) by the house where the Lady lay,and the Merchant being gone about his bussinesse into Armenia: heechanced to see the Lady at a window of the house, and because shee wasvery beautifull, he observed her the more advisedly, recollectinghis sences together, that (doubtlesse) he had seene her before, but inwhat place hee could not remember. The Lady her selfe likewise, whohad so long time beene Fortunes tennis ball, and the terme of her manymiseries drawing now neere an ending: began to conceive (upon the veryfirst sight of Antigonus) that she had formerly seene him inAlexandria, serving her Father in place of great degree. Heereupon,a sodaine hope perswaded her, that by the advice and furtherance ofthis Gentleman, shee should recover her wonted Royall condition: andopportunity now aptly fitting her, by the absence of her pretendedMerchant-husband, shee sent for him, requesting to have a few wordswith him.
