Villon, Francois. Francois Villon (1431-?) was a French poet and rogue. John Erskine made Villon the protagonist of a series of stories in Liberty Magazine from 1935 to 1937; the stories were collected in The Brief Hour of Francois Villon (1937).
The fictional Villon is a larger-than-life and perhaps more clever, if not romanticized, version of the historical Villon.
