Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
From the Introduction by William Carlos Williams: By a single line of verse in an almost forgotten language, Medieval French, the name of Villon goes on living defiantly; our efforts, as we seem to try to efface it, polish and make it shine the more. What is that secret that has escaped with a mere question, deftly phrased, the profundity of the ages: Mais ou sont les neiges d'antan? all that has been forgotten (or better said, all that would gladly have been forgotten) by the poet Villon in his fifteenth-century France has remained so vividly alive, present in everything we are, that it lives on in answer to that eternal question. There are no more than three thousand lines to the whole body of his verse, but they keep an intensity of consciousness about them that is not contrived. there is no invention about them. They are a recital about the man's life with the simple question that he permits himself in retrospect.
