Giambattista Basile

Author Code: TGBX

Born: 1575 - Naples, Italy

Died: Feb. 23, 1632 - Guigliano, Italy

Basile moved to Naples in 1608 and began a career in government, serving in the court of Ferdinandino Gonzaga and holding the post of governor to a number of small Italian states. He was fascinated with folklore and ancient customs of the Neapolitans and began a collection of fairy tales which he set to paper. Lo cunto de li cunti was published in 1634, and became known as the Pentamerone when the editor of the work noted the similarities of its construction to Boccaccio's Decameron. Basile also wrote some poetry in both Spanish and Italian.
