Gilgamesh Books brings you a striking edition of what was considered the epic of its time, which shocked the late Georgians. Byron's Don Juan is arguably the most important extensive poem to have left English shores since Milton's Paradise Lost. Initially the first two Cantos were published anonymously in 1819 due to the 'immoral nature' of the writing, and yet it was immensely popular. Later when Byron threw caution to the winds and self-published the rest of the material, marginal acceptation turned to general outrage. But Byron rebounded, "I maintain that it is the most moral of poems." Byron's 'Epic Satire', as he referred to it, contains "every topic of human life" as Walter Scott observed and Shelley claimed that "every word has the stamp of immortality." Byron was the darling of the Romantic ideal and decadent Spain provided him with a legend that he turned on its head and in so doing produced the greatest work of Spanish exoticism and as Goethe believed, "a work of boundless genius." This edition also contains an extensive foreword outlining the man, the poet, the myth of Don Juan and the place of Byron's masterpiece in the pantheon of poetry.
