Villon, François

Villon, François, French poet, born in Paris; studied at the university, but led a singular life; had again and again to flee from Paris; was once condemned to death, but set free after a four years' imprisonment into which the sentence was commuted; is the author of two poems, entitled the “Petit Testament” and the “Grand Testament,” with minor pieces bearing on the swindling tricks of Villon, the name he assumed, and his companions (1431-1485).
