Week 14: Reading Diary A: The Heptameron of Margaret, Queen of Navarre

The Heptameron of Margaret, Queen of Navarre

A Villager, His Wife, and the Priest: The language of this story is very euphemistic. It basically beats around the bush instead of just coming out and saying that the wife is having an affair with the priest. What kind of priest has an affair with another man's wife? He is like the worst man of God ever. And how did the husband not know there was an affair going on? Especially if the priest was visiting so late at night to return something that the husband did not even know he was borrowing in the first place? I would like to see what happens when the husband does a little sleuthing and puts two and two together.

The President of Grenoble's Revenge: I like how the president has a kind enough heart in the first part of this tale to not kill the clerk or his wife. It is crazy to me how people will just up and cheat on their spouses thinking that they will not get caught! How did this lady not think that her husband's guards wouldn't tell on her!? That is so crazy to me. What an idiot.

The President of Grenoble's Revenge cont.: Ohp. There's the revenge I was looking for. I was waiting for him to actually take action. I wonder if the President sent men after the clerk to kill him when he up and left!? I also wonder if the wife knew that he hadn't forgiven her and was hell bent on poisoning her when the time is right? This is kind of like a last wish story were the man gives the two adulterers lives of luxury up until their deaths.
