Wayne Rebhorn's scholarship explores the social and political dimensions of literature and rhetoric in the European Renaissance. Working in three fields—the literatures of the English Renaissance and of the European Renaissance as well as Renaissance rhetoric—he has authored, translated, and edited or co-edited ten books in addition to over twenty-five scholarly articles on authors from Boccaccio through More and Shakespeare down to Milton. He has won numerous awards and prizes and has been invited to lecture at major universities throughout the United States as well as in France, Italy and Germany. While Rebhorn continues to work on Renaissance authors such as Machiavelli and on Renaissance rhetoric, his most recent project is a new translation of Boccaccio's "Decameron," which was published by Norton in 2013.
