On one important level Don Juan was undertaken specifically to refute the theory and practice of Wordsworth, and the significance of this refutation has yet to be fully appreciated.
6 While there can be no doubting the relevance of Augustan satirical conventions to the style of Don Juan, other recent scholarship on the poem and its milieu suggests that this approach may unnecessarily restrict critics from attending to popular contexts in which the poem participated and that contributed to the ferocity of its initial, largely negative, public reception. These approaches call on the history of mass culture to produce a version of Don Juan that, however indebted to Augustan poetics, looks more like a radical popular entertainment than a learned tract, while retaining important features of the latter.
