    1. But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew, upon a thought, producesThat which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think Tis strange, the shortest letter which man usesInstead of speech, may form a lasting link Of ages to what straits old Time reducesFrail man, when paper even a rag like this,Survives himself, his tomb, and all that s his If you know anything about Byron, you will know this poem will involve lots of sex, women and Byron Don Juan getting exactly what he wants [...]

    3. So much better than I remembered from college The rhymes, humor, and slights Life may certainly be not worth a potato when you are looking for a rhyme for Cato A fun novel length poem


    4. Byron s famous verse novel is kind of uneven, but when he s on form it s both moving and witty My favorite sequences are near the beginning, when the beautiful Donna Julia has fallen in love with young Juan and is having qualms of conscience First she decides that she can no longer continue to see him, but then she reconsiders After all, that would be selfish of her It s just a question of keeping her feelings under control, and she could help him so much He might be taught, by love and her toge [...]


    5. What men call gallantry, and gods adulteryIs much common where the climate s sultry Byron s long, digressive, wildly funny, outrageously rhymed Don Juan is a wonderful satire of the epic poem, of the legend of Don Juan, and of the s of Byron s own times It is written throughout in octava rima, an 8 line stanza that, in English, given the paucity of rhymes, is inevitably humourous Byron uses the structure variously, often giving us a clinching final couplet that reflects bathetically back on wha [...]


    6. Don Juan is a somewhat scathing, exceedingly witty, epic social commentary that was told by a revolutionary mind with great skill and reverence for the crafting of words In Lord Byron s cantos of this poem, I see social networking centuries before its time with Byron s asides about his contemporaries And his protagonist, young unfortunate Don Jewan, is tossed about haphazardly from country to country by the strangest events, narrating a dissection of every society he comes upon which, unfortunat [...]


    7. Byron has been my favorite Romantic poet as he was during the Romantic period since I have been able to read with ease say, since grad school.His English Bard and Scotch Reviewers sets the standard for English Satire since Jonson and Dryden It is very funny at the expense of an intellectual elite much less doubtful than ours today We need another Byron.His Don Juan is without equal in English literature maybe Ariosto s similar in Italian, though I think Byron witty, finally.Byron s, and his Don [...]

    9. Don t be afraid This book only looks intimidating It s actually one of the most hilarious and comically sharp books I ve ever read Byron was a genuis, poet status notwithstanding Poetry has little to do with it actually, with all that is awesome about Don Juan


    10. Sentiment and SatireAlthough I normally read and review only novels, I was intrigued by the short excerpts from Byron s Epic Satire Don Juan that Stendhal used as chapter epigraphs in Le rouge et le noir, and read both simultaneously Published between 1819 and 1824, in sixteen cantos containing an average of 125 eight line stanzas in each, Byron s work is essentially a vast novel in verse, a coming of age story, an erotic romp, and a fount of social commentary all in one He reverses the normal c [...]


    11. What can you say about Byron He s insane, he s brilliant, he s a romantic and so much Don Juan is a classic twisted with English humor and the puns are abounding My favorite, favorite lines are Thou shalt believe in Milton, Dryden, Pope Thou shalt not set up Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey Because the first is crazed beyond all hope,The second drunk, the third so quaint and mouthy IVIn 80,000 lines of rhyming verse he attacks cant, politics, and the Lakers 18th c poets, NOT the basketball team , [...]


    12. LOVED IT One of the funniest poems ever, Byron makes fun of an ordinary well known character who is Don Juan by making him the Byronic Hero who is rather acted on than act, always sees and got effected by the result of the action Don Juan is the modern day hero he is surviving everything he s going through


    13. A rattling good tale, but only Byron could contrive rhymes such as She snatched it, and refused another morsel,Saying, he had gorged enough to make a horse ill Well, Wordsworth probably could too.Both evidently had too much time on their hands.


    14. Man s love is of his life a thing apart, Tis woman s whole existence Man may range the court, camp, church, the vessel, and the mart sword, gown, gain, glory offer in exchange pride, fame, ambition to fill up his heart, and few there are whom these cannot estrange Man has all these resources, we but one, to mourn alone the love which has undone Canto I, Stanza 194 There still are many rainbows in your sky, but mine have vanished All, when life is new, commence with feelings warm and prospects hi [...]


    15. I dont know why, I have no clueHow one day this idea grew Byron s works I ve had read zeroAnd that s a shame, I m greek and he s our hero I went to bookstores for his poems but in vain Apart from letters and biographies there was no gain.It was then, when desperation was ampleWhen i saw it Don Juan in kindle sample.Language was my fear, if I would get it rightBut what the hell I said, i ll try it And lo some words were old, pain in the assNot even on the dictionairy alas Its style too I could no [...]

    17. I ve been reading this book for over a year and finally finished it over this break I was often entertained, often a little bored, and at times astonished by some great poetry Byron himself points out the flaw with his work Let us ramble on I meant to make this poem very short, But now I can t tell where it may not run No doubt if I had wished to pay my court To critics or to hail the setting sun Of tyranny of all kinds, my concision Were , but I was born for opposition So, OK, it s rambly as th [...]


    18. Reading Lord Byron s poetry is never dull, reading Don Juan is a delighting way to pass your evening From the very first stanzas the reader will be giggling and keeping a smile that will only be eclipsed at knowing the extent of the poem, for Byron himself joked about long poems When poets say, I ve written fifty rhymes, They make you dread that they ll recite them too Don Juan, Lord Byron, Canto I, 108 Then, knowing that only Canto I out of XVII cantos has 222 stanzas the reader may reconsider [...]


    19. So, so witty and so hilarious I suppose cheeky would be the best term to describe this epic poem Byron is a favourite of mine, and to me, this is an unparalleled piece of literature It amazes me how Byron can simultaneously be charming and irreverent in this satire of the infamous ladykiller of the same name Byron actually flips the script on his hero whose name is to be pronounced jew an in this work Instead of being the romantic conquistador of legend, this Juan is actually the one who is susc [...]


    20. wonderful, both modern and archaic, both elements of romanticism and realism Very beautifully written and exceeded my expectations.



    21. listening for school I only have to read Cantos I II but I m enjoying it enough that I may listen to all 12 at some point.


    22. Tis sweet to win, no matter how, one slaurels,By blood or ink tis sweet to put and endTo strife tis sometimes sweet to have ourquarrels,Particularly with a tiresome friend Sweet is old wine in bottles, ale in barrels Dear is the helpless creature we defend Against the world and dear is the schoolboyspotWe ne er forget, though there we are forgot Canto I CXXVII have generally been taking it slow with Byron, as I find him to be just a tad difficult to read in comparison to the likes of Keats Howe [...]


    23. This epic mockery, Byron writWith excellent recourse to wit,passion, war, and sharp satires Though by the end it tires.We follow our hero, quite Byronic,on adventures soaked ironic,If you thought you knew Don JuanFor Byron s hero is a now one.In Seville, with Julia loveAlight d on his heart a dove A dove why that is just a pigeon alas rhyming is a fool s religion.Anyhow, a dove alighted on heart,And gave his innocence a start.And by and by his Julia dearyHad a husband old and weary,Who spoiled J [...]


    24. Poetry is not as much in vogue these days More s the pity Many still read Byron, but when you consider that Byromania , as it was called, once swept all of Britain and much of Europe and the Mediterranean countries, it s evident how far his popularity has fallen Which is even of a pity.Byron s poetry is exquisite, and much of it is as topical today as when he penned the words to paper This excerpt from the first stanza of CANTO THE FIRST sets the tone for the entire work I would to heaven that [...]


    25. What a fun and educational read The dedication to Southey and other first generation Romantics who turned their backs on liberalism and embraced Tory causes reminded me of Byron s great romp in English Bards and Scotch Reviewers For epic tear downs, Byron s got it.Canto 1 was awesome The story of Juan s parent s marriage was great and I loved his description of his affair with Donna Julia Canto 2 has a wonderful quote H e fell upon whate er was offer d, like A priest, a shark, an alderman, or pi [...]


    26. I ve enjoyed two incarnations of Don Juan This is the second I tried The first is Mozart s operatic version Perhaps no artist came to the subject material qualified than Lord Byron Lord Byron s version is the Paradise Lost or Odyssey of Don Juan treatments It is epic, filled with humor, passion, drama, melodrama, and action By the end, Byron s even gotten a ghost in the mix But is it a real ghost You ll have to read to find out I m a big fan of Lord Byron His poems, even the schmaltzy ones, suc [...]


    27. I imagined Don Juan the character to be an amoral lethario, but I was quite wrong The situations that he finds himself in are varied and entertaining, and the narrator, who often throws in his own two cents, is hilarious Plus, I m always impressed by an epic poem written in a set structure for example, the ottava rima as opposed to traditional blank verse.I started this during my intense GRE Lit test prep I read about half, loved it, but put it aside to study other works Now, six months later, I [...]


    28. I read so much Byron in university that revisiting it over the last few weeks reminded me just how good this epic poem is I don t think I can sum up in the short GoodReads way why I love Byron so much, whether it s the romanticism that appeals to me, or his ability to abandon the story completely to take off on a tangent that has him analyzing the current cultural climate within which he was writing Whether it s how his education itself impacted his poetry, or the sheer beauty of some of the sta [...]


    29. Hilarious Byron is really clever about mispronouncing most of the names proper nouns through his rhyming I ve only read the first two cantos for class but seriously enjoyed it The satirical commentary on relationships, constancy and society in general really hits the nail on the head Funny and disconcerting at the same time.
