"as I understand, is in part a take on Don Juan (it adopts the Juan's verse form)." —R. Anderson

Composed mostly in the same ottava rima stanzas that Byron used for his Don Juan, the story follows the fortunes of Michael Byrne, an Irishman with Spanish blood in him, as a result of Spanish survivors of the war between England's Royal Navy and the Spanish Armada settling in Ireland and breeding with the Irish in the 16th century. -Wikipedia
