Roald Dahl’s Subversive Storytelling
Cue one timely suicide and a duplex coffin to accommodate the star-crossed lovers. Head in the Herbs Young Lorenzo and Lisabetta are enjoying a bit of personal time together and this comes to the attention of her three brothers. Obviously since they're not married, bumping uglies is considered as sinful as murder or high treason because it's a slight on their honour. How very dare they! The three brothers lure frisky Lorenzo away from the house, kill him quick smart and stuff him into a shallow grave. Job done. Ghostly Lorenzo visits Lisabetta and grasses on the brothers Grim.
Rather inexplicably, instead of exposing her brothers as murderous bastards, she digs up Lorenzo and cuts off his head and puts it into a pot and covers it with growing basil like a gruesome Chia Pet.

The cuckolded king shish-kebabs his best friend and takes the heart of defeated the knight, minces it, adds a pinch of garlic, some salt and a few herbs and serves it a la carte for the queen to unknowingly enjoy. The moral of this story is clearly that mince is not real food and if you can't tell what it once was, then you probably shouldn't be putting it in your mouth. View all 32 comments.

These gathered tales concern love and lots of s-e-x, though they are in no way remotely graphic enough to be considered "erotica.
Though there is a good deal to be said for using one's imagination Some of the stories seem almost to be the origins of many popular dirty jokes - desire leads to a naughty game of "musical beds," and a group of young, attractive, and therefore, naturally horny, nuns needs a gardener to tend their bushes. I kept waiting for the one about the salesman and the farmer's daughter, but apparently it didn't make the cut.
Like those Grimm boys, Boccaccio has a hankering for the tragic, and some of the tales end rather gruesomely with lovesick maidens kissing the lifeless heads and hearts of their paramours. Apparently, the surest way to live happily ever after is to kill yourself in a fit of grief. Oh, and I did get a chuckle out of this line - " We all know what kind of trouble THAT can lead to View 2 comments.

But they're great! Nov 18, Vanessa rated it liked it Shelves: short-stories. This is definitely my favourite of the Penguin Great Loves series that I have read so far. The Eaten Heart is a selection of 11 of the tales from Boccaccio's Decameron , a text that I previously knew nothing about, but this little selection has definitely piqued my interest to read the text in full some day! The stories contained in this slim volume are surprisingly bawdy and silly, and a lot were very good fun.
From a young peasant pretending to be deaf and dumb to seduce a whole nunnery, to a ri This is definitely my favourite of the Penguin Great Loves series that I have read so far. From a young peasant pretending to be deaf and dumb to seduce a whole nunnery, to a ridiculous Carry On -esque bed swapping tale, the first couple of stories were light and fun. However, a lot of the stories took an equally sexual but dark turn, and I did really enjoy that aspect. Not all of the stories however were as interesting, and there was a degree of repetition amongst them - a young couple who want to sleep together find a subtle way, and something happens as a result.

Overall though this is a solid collection of short stories, and a surprisingly quick read. Feb 24, Christina rated it it was ok Shelves: reads , penguin-great-loves. I love the idea that a group of people told these stories to each other in order to distract themselves from the Plague. What I don't love, however, is how Even the title story, The Eaten Heart, was a let down. Here I am expecting the heart to be eaten right out of the lover's body, and instead it's just served to her on a plate. View 1 comment.
Oct 11, Elaine rated it liked it Shelves: read Fun, bawdy and occasionally a little disturbing. Semi adult fairy tales for the vaguely twisted. Part of the 'classic loves collection'.
Jul 04, Samantha rated it it was amazing. This was a very good book; I enjoyed it. Aug 04, Mia rated it liked it Shelves: books-i-own. While these stories were mostly fun and entertaining, there was not a lot of variety between them. The characters were essentially the same the highly sexual yet unsatisfied female, the sexual male who can sate her desires, and the cuckholded male in different scenarios, but the stories were short and generally amusing.
