Notes:
German adaptation of the tale of Torello by Erhard Lurcker from Giovanni Boccaccio's Decameron. "Freilich konnte er davon nur eine sehr dunkle Vorstellung haben; denn das italienische Original hatte Lurcker wohl nie vor Augen. Vielmehr arbeitete er .... nach der Übersetzung Arigo-Schlüsselfelders, die bekanntlich viel Unzulänglichkeiten enthält ..."--H. Fromm, "Ein deutscher Boccaccio im Knittelvers" in Mélanges de philologie et de linguistique offerts à Tauno Nurmela (Turku: Turun Yliopisto, 1967), p. 32-33.
