By: Portante, Jean

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Dedalus: 2004

ISBN: 190455606X

Condition: Fine


Bilingual edition. NEW. 2004 Trade Paperback. Jean Portante's poetry, as well as his other writings, have been translated into many languages but never English until now.

Publisher: Anvil Press: 2004

Seller ID: 2279591

Bilingual edition. An exceptional copy. 2004 Trade Paperback. François 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. View more info
