Byron’s exuberant masterpiece narrates the exploits of Don Juan, a handsome and charming young man naturally gifted with the ladies. After his first illicit love affair at the age of sixteen in his native Spain, Don Juan is exiled to Italy and catapulted into a string of adventures that send him into dire peril and luxurious boudoirs around the world. Following a dramatic shipwreck and an affair with a pirate’s daughter on a Greek island, he is sold into slavery and finds himself in a Sultan’s harem, then in battle in Turkey, and finally in Russia, where he becomes the lover of Catherine the Great.

Written in ottava rima stanza form, Byron’s Don Juan blends high drama with outrageous farce. Sprinkled with digressions on wealth, power, society, chastity, poets, and England, Don Juan is a poetical novel of satirical fervor and wit.

    " Other than some of Keats's short lyric poetry and Coleridge's weirder stuff, probably my favorite British Romantic production. "

    " The dedication to Southey has to be the rudest and funniest I've ever read in my life! "

    " Byron's mock-epic is very funny indeed. He has mastered the mock-epic form and the text keeps you coming back. Not my personal favorite, however. "

    " I know its a classic, BUT I read it and don't remember one bit of it. But then again maybe I fell asleep and didn't realize it...although it still doesn't say much. Its a classic for a reason though. "
