In 2002 and 2005, Menard Press published Then and Now — Words in the Dark and From Now to Then as the first two books of a three-part work-in-progress. As a selection from the on-going third book — Opus 3Boccaccio in Florence and Other Poems offers the reader what amounts to a historical preview of the three fundamental concerns of human life on which Opus 3 as a whole will be based — the emotional/physical, the ethical, and the spiritual — by means of a more or less chronological rather than thematic arrangement, from Boccaccio and the Dance of Death to the present day. To this extent, Boccaccio in Florence is a variation on the themes of Opus 3 and a work in its own right.
