Don Juan



Byron as Don Juan, with Haidee, 1831, by Alexandre Colin . . .  —  Buy this art print at


Fictitious character who is generally regarded as a symbol of libertinism. Libertinism is immoral behavior that is not restrained by conscience or conventions.

The legend tells how Don Juan seduced a girl of noble family and then killed her father when he sought revenge. Later Don Juan saw a ghost of the father and flippantly invited it to dinner. The ghost arrived to foreshadow Don Juan's own death.

Don Juan was first given literary personality in the 1630 tragic drama 'The Seducer of Seville' by the Spanish dramatist Tirso de Molina. In this version the drama is heightened by Don Juan's attractive qualities — his lively character, arrogant courage, and sense of humor. The drama's power comes from its rapid pace. There is growing tension as Don Juan's enemies hound him to self-destruction. He refuses to repent and falls to eternal damnation. Through Tirso's version, Don Juan became a universal figure, comparable to Hamlet and Don Quixote.

In the 17th century the Don Juan story was incorporated into the repertoire of strolling Italian players who carried the legend to France. By the 19th century many foreign versions of the Don Juan legend existed. Some of these musical and literary works include Mozart's opera 'Don Giovanni', produced in 1787, Lord Byron's satiric poem 'Don Juan' (1819-24), and George Bernard Shaw's drama 'Man and Superman' (performed in 1907), including the well-known third act, 'Don Juan in Hell'.
