    Why is there such a contrast between the expressions on the faces of the two figures? because the man is afraid of death, but Death is happy to have another victim because the man is resisting Death, who is struggling to bring him along because Death is sad to see a frightened man die in his prime because Death feels good at having so many souls to take with him

    Second Question: Use the following excerpt from Boccaccio's The Decameron to answer the following question: In the year of our Lord 1348, there happened at Florence, the finest city in all Italy a most terrible plague; which, whether owing to the influence of the planets, or that it was sent from God as a just punishment for our sins, had broken out some years before in the Levant (Middle East) and, after passing from place to place, and making incredible havoc all the way, had now reached the west… [The plague] occasioned various fears and devices amongst those who survived, all tending to the same uncharitable and cruel end; which was, to avoid the sick and everything that had been near them, expecting by that means to save themselves. Some [held] it best to live temperately and to avoid excesses of all kinds…and…they shut themselves up from the rest of the world…Others maintained free living to be a better preservative and would balk no passion or appetite they wished to gratify, drinking and reveling incessantly from tavern to tavern…yet strenuously avoiding, with all this brutal indulgence, to come near the infected.— Public Domain How does Boccaccio let you know that he recognized that the plague spread widely from one location to another? He states that it was caused by rats. He states that it caused reckless behavior. He states that it spread from the Middle East. He states that people did not avoid the sick.
