A humorous and satiric narrative poem based on the legend of Don Juan.
Don Juan is an epic poem detailing the life and adventures of a young Spaniard. However, unlike many long epics, Don Juan uses humorous rhyme and stanzas that are fairly easy to read. It is genuinely lighthearted and entertaining, while at the same time explores dark Gothic undertones and themes.--Submitted by Kamryn Lewis.
Can anyone tell me where to find a translation in Dutch from the following verse: But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think; 'Tis strange, the shortest letter which man uses Instead of speech, may form a lasting link Of ages; to what straits old Time reduces Frail man, when paper - even a rag like this - , Survives himself, his tomb, and all that's his. Lord George Byron 1788-1824, (Don Juan, Canto 3, stanza 88) Thanks a lot! :)
