George Gordon Byron: Don Juan

Language:
English
Genres:
Fiction & Literature, Poetry

Lord George Gordon Byron was as famous in his lifetime for his personality cult as for his poetry. He published his first book of verse at age 18, and he continued to write and publish poetry until his untimely death at 36. Although a lifelong poet, Byron did not consider poetry his primary vocation; he saw himself as a man destined to achieve greatness, primarily through helping end the oppression of various peoples, including the Spanish and especially the Greeks. “Don Juan” is a satirical poem by Lord Byron, based on the legend of Don Juan, which Byron reverses, portraying Juan not as a womaniser but as someone easily seduced by women. It is a variation on the epic form. Byron himself called it an "Epic Satire". We present you the famous poem that was criticised for its "immoral content", though it was also immensely popular. Enjoy the reading!
