Poems of Francois Villon : The Legacy, The Testament and Other Poems Paperback
Francois Villon was born in Paris in 1431. His life was blighted by destitution and ill health, robbery and murder, torture and exile.
While we do not know what became of Villon after his 32nd year, the poems he produced in just six years capture in forceful, intelligent and candid verse the low and high life of Paris.
They constitute a body of work with few rivals in the literature of his own country or in that of any other.
Peter Dale has revised his translations for this new edition.
