The poems of François Villon by François Villon( Book )

83 editions published between 1890 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most original and influential European poets of the Middle Ages, Francois Villon took his inspiration from the streets, taverns, and jails of Paris. Villon was a subversive voice speaking from the margins of society. He wrote about love and sex, money trouble, "the thieving rich," and the consolations of good food and wine. His work is striking in its directness, wit, and gritty urban realism. Villon s writing spurred the development of the psychologically complex first-person voice in lyric poetry. He has influenced generations of avant-garde poets and artists. Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine have emulated Villon s poetry. Claude Debussy set it to music, and Bertolt Brecht adapted it for the stage. Ezra Pound championed Villon s poetry and became largely responsible for its impact on modern verse. With David Georgi s ingenious translation, English-speaking audiences finally have a text that captures the riotous energy and wordplay of the original. With a newly revised French text that reflects the latest scholarship, this bilingual edition also features inviting and informative notes that illuminate the nuances of Villon s poems and the world of medieval Paris."

Le testament by François Villon( Book )

113 editions published between 1489 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violent, indignant, ribald and often brutally physical, Villon's verse has a formidable satiric thrust, and yet it also encompasses passages of poignant nostalgia and haunting lyric expression, culminating in his digressive autobiographical masterpiece, The Testament, presented here in a new translation and with an introduction by John Banville

"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
