Opening paragraphs....................

I want a hero: an uncommon want,
   When every year and month sends forth a new one,
Till, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
    The age discovers he is not the true one;
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt,
    I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan -
We all have seen him, in the pantomime,
Sent to the devil somewhat ere his time.
-Lord Byron, Don Juan:  A Satiric Epic of Modern Life
