    Tales of seduction the figure of Don Juan in Spanish culture by Sarah Wright( file )
    6 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 1,319 libraries worldwide
    Don Juan is one of the intriguing creations of Western literature. A legendary seducer of women, trickster and transgressor of sacred boundaries, he has been the object of countless revisions over the centuries. The twentieth-century has viewed the figure afresh through the prism of its own cultural terms of reference and social concerns. Using an interdisciplinary approach, 'Tales of Seduction' focuses on the intersections between myth, culture and intellectual inquiry. Sarah Wright takesDon Juan back to Spain, his birth-place, and examines the confluences of Spanish culture with aspects of Western intellectual history (medicine, psychoanalysis, linguistics), where she finds Don Juan continues to transgress the limits of culture from the early twentieth century to the present

Sin embargo, este don Juan original, padre de todos los demás, es el menos conocido--P. 9

    Don Juan : comedy in five acts, 1665 by Molière( Book )
    2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 702 libraries worldwide
    Don Juan, the "Seducer of Seville," originated as a hero-villain of Spanish folk legend, is a famous lover and scoundrel who has made more than a thousand sexual conquests. One of Moliere's best-known plays, Don Juan was written while Tartuffe was still banned on the stages of Paris, and shared much with the outlawed play. Modern directors transform Don Juan in every new era, as each director finds something new to highlight in this timeless classic. Richard Wilbur's flawless translation will be the standard for generations to come, as have his translations of Moliere's other plays. Witty, urbane, and poetic in its prose, Don Juan is, most importantly, as funny now as it was for audiences when it was first presented
