The paper highlights that though Lord Byron’s range of poems is very wide, it is through his much-celebrated poem, Don Juan, that he is mostly remembered. “It is a complicated tale of a human existential dilemma, encompassing both nihilism and traditional morality. Don Juan is Byron in a nutshell: as he was and as he wished humanity to be. a disillusioned yet continually idealistic portrait of mankind” (Holstad). It is in a sense, his political poem.
In conclusion, to look at only the political views of the romantic poets in order to assess their literary contribution is never good. Romanticism is a literary, artistic, and philosophical movement. There are several great aspects of this movement. It is centered on an individual. It is subjective, imaginative, spontaneous, emotional, radical, visionary, and transcendental. It becomes interested in politics, mainly because social and political ideologies affect the freedom of an individual, his spiritual growth. Also, political ideologies are mostly materialistic. A poet like Wordsworth can never tolerate the world becoming “too much like us”. William Blake could see the evils of exploitation and reproduced his sympathetic observations in beautiful poetic style. He did not try to identify himself with any political side. Byron, on the other hand, was too impatient to sit back and study the probable historical reasons of the oppressed society. He gave himself too much freedom, to indulge in everything excessively. But, he was also true to his instincts and imagination as an artist.
