by Lord Byron

Don Juan is a satirical, epic poem written by Lord Byron based on the legend of Don Juan. The book is composed of 16 cantos, leaving canto 17 unfinished due to Lord Byron's death in 1824. Lord Byron describes Don Juan as someone who is easily seduced by women. It is a variant of the epic form that Byron called satire.

The story begins with the birth of Don Juan. Since he was young, he is sexually very precocious and has an affair with a friend of his mother, much older than him. This lover's husband finds out and Don Juan is sent to Cádiz.

During the journey to Cádiz the ship is shipwrecked, but he survives and is found by a pirate ship, where he meets the daughter of a pirate, and whose crew sells him as a slave to a rich sultan. In this way, Don Juan will travel to different places and in each situation he will end up having a love affair with a woman. There are also some adventures related to the aristocracy of Great Britain.
