They say he was born the day they burned Joan of Arc. He was a bohemian and a wanderer, a thief and a convicted murderer. François Villon lived the life of a vagabond in the company of princes and paupers. Along the way, he penned some of the most famous poetry ever produced in the French language. Taken in at an early age by an uncle in Paris, Villon learned his reckless ways amidst the wild pranks of student life. But mischief turned to murder and he soon found himself jailed then banished, destined to an uncertain future of wondering and wandering. He stole to survive and found refuge in the arms of women and the palaces of dukes. His story is that of a poet, an outlaw and a restless soul. Through it all, his lasting legacy is his poetry – powerful, mysterious and autobiographical. Based upon 'Je, François Villon' by Jean Teulé ? Editions Julliard
