To take one of these essays, copy it, and to pass it off as your own is known as plagiarism—academic dishonesty which will result (in every university I've heard tell of) in suspension or dismissal from the university.

In this essay, I read the 9th story of the 9th Day—a tale, ostensibly, of Solomonic wisdom—as the negative apotheosis of its narrator, the deeply confused Emilia. After considering the novella itself as a disturbed and disturbing scene of interpretation, leading to the savage beating of an unruly wife, I frame it, by turns, in relation to (1) Emilia’s introduction of the tale as an inverted allegory of female subjugation to patriarchal power; (2) her (largely abdicated) role as queen for a Day of narrative license and incompetence; and (3) her key, if contradictory, appearances throughout the Decameron as a whole, which consistently foreground the unstable relation of the text to medieval traditions of epistemology and gender hierarchy. Emilia and her story of Solomon’s enigmatic advice hold up a mirror, though a dark one indeed, to the conflicted soul of the Decameron itself, by turns celebratory and condemnatory of women, thoughtlessly sensual and deeply reflective in its pleasures, Solomonic both in its commitment to compassionate wisdom and its confinement to the world of the human and the natural, and, above all, incessantly worried over how to re-negotiate the fundamental opposition of Christianity, medieval and Dantean, between the letter that kills and the spirit that saves.
