Don Juan is a long, digressive satiric poem http://www.vanderbilt.edu/AnS/english/English151W-03/byron%5Bdonjuan%5D.htmby Lord Byron, based on the legend of Don Juan which Byron reverses portraying Juan not as a womaniser but someone easily seduced by women. It is a variation on the epic form. Unlike the more tortured early romantic works by Byron, exemplified by Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Don Juan has a more humorous, satirical bent.
