Byron, George Gordon Byron, Baron (1788-1824)

 

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 mores 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.

 

Green leather covered hardback book with gold title lettering and fleur de lys decoration. Gold edge pages. Marbled inside cover papers. Condition: previously owned, shelf tired edges and wear commensurate with age.
