Giovanni Boccaccio wrote Il Corbaccio in Italian in the mid-fourteenth century. From the mid-eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, critics interpreted the Corbaccio as autobiographical and misogynistic. Then, from tothey interpreted the Corbaccio as fictional and misogynistic.

He has a hearing problem and betrays no sign of concern for Volpone, delighting openly in (fake) reports of Volpone's worsening symptoms. But Corbaccio agrees to return later in the day to make Volpone his heir, so that Volpone will return the favor.

This act is a boon to Volpone, since Corbaccio, in all likelihood, will die long before Volpone does. After each hunter leaves, Volpone and Mosca laugh at each's gullibility.

Mosca’s name means fly, and like a fly, Mosca buzzes around whispering in the ears of all the other characters in the play.

He is Volpone ’s parasite, meaning hanger-on, and he makes his living by doing Volpone’s bidding.

He convinces Corbaccio that his son is out to kill him, tells the suspicious Voltore that Bonario has made Celia swear that Volpone had raped her, and gets Corvino to denounce Celia as a lewd woman.

I quote from the article: “The Corbaccio is ‘the most enigmatic and least attractive of Boccaccio’s works,’ remarks the eminent scholar G.H.

McWilliam. Many readers, on the contrary, will find the book not only intensely enjoyable, but crucial for getting a sense of the relationship between the various parts of Boccaccio’s work.”. Mosca hatches a plot to secure Celia for his master.

He tells Corvino that the mountebank's oil, purchased for Volpone by Corbaccio, has revived the flagging health of the fox. However, if Volpone is to live on, he must sleep with some young woman. The others are seeking the cure for Volpone, and Corvino must hurry or lose his investment.

Other articles where Il Corbaccio is discussed: Giovanni Boccaccio: Petrarch and Boccaccio’s mature years.: wrote nothing in Italian except Il Corbaccio (–55; a satire on a widow who had jilted him), his late writings on Dante, and perhaps an occasional lyric.

[16],[6],[1] p.
