Publisher's Summary

Byron's Don Juan is a comic masterpiece written in a satirical, mock heroic style. Based on the legend of Don Juan, (which is here pronounced JOO-AN), Byron completely reverses the portrayal of Juan, instead showing him as someone easily seduced by women instead of seducing them. He called this form of poetry "epic satire". It is generally considered to be Byron's masterpiece.

An Amazing Satirical Journey

It is unfortunate, and indeed a loss to literature, that Byron failed to complete this novel before his passing. It’s a beautiful work that is properly satirical — funny, engaging, and written in a noble diction.
