Don Juan is perhaps Byron's greatest single work, a huge mock-epic that draws together many of the abiding concerns of his life and was one of the last poems he completed.Biografía del autor:
George Gordon, afterwards Lord Byron, was born in London in 1788. He inherited the title and seat at Newstead Abbey, but little money, in 1798. His first poems were written at Harrow before he proceeded to Trinity College, Cambridge, acquiring a reputation for high living. He published two volumes, Fugitive Pieces and Hours of Idleness, in 1807, but they attracted criticism. After a Mediterranean tour, Byron completed the first two cantos of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, which made him a celebrity on publication in 1812. Further poems were successful but the end of his brief and unsuitable marriage in 1816 led to scandal and Byron left England never to return. He went to Switzerland with Percy and Mary Shelley, then to Venice, where he completed Childe Harold, wrote Manfred and started Don Juan. He also corresponded with Goethe and became involved in the cause of Italian independence as his fame grew. Moving around the Mediterranean in 1822 he became actively involved in the movement for Greek independence from Turkey, becoming one of its political and naval leaders. He contracted rheumatic fever from a severe chill in an open boat, and died in April 1824. His heart was buried in Greece, his body at Newstead after Westminster Abbey refused it.
