Description:

Paris, 1431 – At the crossroads of the Renaissance and the Middle Ages, at the end of the Hundred Years War between France and England, when Joan of Arc, the virgin of Orleans, was burned alive on the Grande Place de Rouen, France saw the birth of François de Montcorbier or later Maître des Loges, also named François Villon. Son of a poor family from the Montcorbier region, where his name probably also comes from, he was raised by his uncle, Guillaume de Villon, Master of Arts, in a fairly modest house in Paris. It is this name with which François will enter posterity. He is the first to change French poetry of the Middle Ages, the one who will make his mark in eternity with his poems. François Villon remains in legend: the poet and the burglar. His life and his poetry are so related.  (The author)
