Arisman, Berkey Elwood

Much has been written about Byron's masterpiece, Don Juan. Indeed, since it is his longest and best work, it deserves a major portion of the critic's attention. Yet, strangely enough, there hare been few books devoted to this poem exclusively. It is usually discussed in a general way with only a few pages devoted to it. These critics emphasize the love affairs and the satire of English society. Twenty-five or more subjects in the poem may be carefully analyzed, yet the one which should receive first consideration is usually mentioned and then forgotten. It is the character of Don Juan, himself.
