Summary

In the Introduction, taking my cue from a speech made by George Canning in 1820, I argue that Don Juan is addressed to a reading nation conceived as an aggregate of individuals rather than a community. It is a poem addressed to a readership that Byron recognises as a collection of heterogeneous individuals.
