Two texts in particular—Boccaccio's Decameron and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales—exemplify the great contributions the Nights have given to western literature. More importantly, by looking at the similarities between these works, we can learn more about medieval social attitudes, especially when it comes to issues of gender.
