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.
