3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louis Simpson's translation of Francois Villon's The Legacy & The Testament is the definitive translation of the life work of one of France's greatest poets. Raised by a foster father who intended him for the Church, Villon associated with thieves and vagabonds. Later imprisoned, chained and tortured, he survived to write one of the most enduring epics ever." "This translation of Villon is faithful to the original structure and each poem is translated with its original pathos and wit."--Jacket
