Thus, both these literary pieces are effective to understand and delineate the difference between love and lust and the importance along with the origin of love in the life of human beings. Thesis Statement Based on the deep delineation of the myriad aspects of love exposed in the immortal pieces like Orlando Furioso and Decameron , this paper intends to expose the difference between love and lust along with the exposition of true love. Also this paper intends to investigate the actual reason for manifestation of love resulting into absolute foolishness and loosing of control over mind by human beings. Origin of Idea The romantic epic poem Orlando Furioso centres round the unfulfilled love of Orlando for the pagan princess in the centre of the poem. But at the same plane there are other love stories that are captivated in this eternal saga of love and present various subtle and intricate cases to understand the effect and reason of love, desire and lust in their lives. This understanding when connected. implemented and most importantly percolated in the lives of common people, gives a newer definitions and meaning to the concept of love. In Orlando Furioso, apart from the central love story of Orlando and Angelica, there are developments of amorous relationships between Bradamante, who was a female Christian warrior and that of Ruggiero. The chemistry of this couple also enables the readers to set their explicit idea on love.
Decameron is mostly a tale of love and Boccaccio dedicated the amorous tales to the ladies of the time who were compelled to lead a cloistered life suppressing their love and passion for the men of their choice. The allusion referring to the sub-title of the book bears the title of  .Prencipe Galeotto derived from Dante’s Galleotto in “Inferno V” who is the character responsible for arousing lust and passion in the episode of Paolo and Francesca. After delving deep into the two contemporary literary pieces, one evident query comes into mind that why the literature of the period expressed love at an extreme paradigm. Love as an ordinary facet nowhere found place in Decameron or Olando Furioso. In both the pieces, love is treated as an extreme vice for which people are shown meeting tragic end, losing control over their mind almost reaching the level of madness or frenzy. The medieval concept of love was unnatural. The expression of lust, passion or sex was treated as blasphemy. The Catholic Churches were responsible for the extreme control of human passion and conduct which the body used to execute in the name of “Four Cardinal Virtues” or “Three Theological Virtues”. Literature manifested by educated men gave the space for sex to get related in the natural scheme of things in the lives of mankind. Yet there was a mental shackle or barrier to transcend the fact and launch passion or lust into the natural scheme of things for mankind. This is the reason for which most of the men and women in love in the sagas of the medieval period are shown behaving in some abnormal ways or going to the extreme end to reach the happy ending of their love story.
