Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

Medieval forms of literature such as lais, farces, sotternies, fabliaux, kluchten, boerdes and contes en vers have fed Boccaccio's Decameron, Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Queen Navarre's Heptameron like jokes permeate culture and the collective unconscious.

The birth of Western literature starts with the Italian novella framed by a larger tale, see frame tale.
