Decameron ii 10. Laws of Nature and human dreams · The arrival of Dioneo brings in the second Day a decisive stylistic turn down. The story of the providential end of the marriage between the old judge Riccardo of Chinzica and the beautiful and brave Bartolomea Gualandi introduces the theme of the strength of nature, whose mandatory laws have repercussions on the relations between human beings. This theme is seminal in the following Days. If the use of legal texts and, in particular, of the Decretum Gratiani seems to give substance to some interpretations of the novella, Aristotle’s Ethica Nichomachea, with the commentary by Thomas Aquinas, offers itself to the reader as a useful tool for a wider understanding of the tragic and comic facts narrated at the end of the second Day.
