Abstract

This paper points out a new philosophic source of Decameron First Day, that is, books III and IV of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. The author also discusses the rhetorical devices of Boccaccio’s rewriting and its meaning in the semantic structure of his whole book. In general, Boccaccio uses Aristotle’s text contents as narrative topoi in order to shape some of the narrative features of the fabula, or to provide a motivational support for the behaviour of the different characters. But also Aristotle’s dispositio models contribute to establish a syntagmatic order in the succession of First Day tales.
