Im just reading Don Juan.

Pretty good. There is some edition with a lot footnotes to make clear a lot of stuff.

>>7876583
How lengthy is Don Juan?
>>
he was great because he was skeptical of "Mr. Turdsworth and the pond poets" and brought romanticism back in line with the poetic tradition of Pope and Johnson

also because that man had some serious talent

I still don't like him as much as Wordsworth or Coleridge, both of whom were greater geniuses. Still, he was a great poet.

Some say he was over eight inches.

Byronic heroes probably would be named something else if he hadn't come along.
