The Eaten Heart

The Eaten Heart is an adaptation of the Penguin Great Loves version of Giovanni Boccaccio’s The Eaten Heart: Unlikely Tales of Love. Text has been removed from every page with the use of a scalpel, leaving only words that could pertain to the body, or body parts. By removing these words from their context and grouping them together, their significance changes dramatically, thus celebrating the abundant innuendo in Boccaccio’s original text.
