Don Juan is first told by an unnamed first-person narrator who charts the early childhood of the protagonist Don Juan. The unnamed narrator is soon revealed to be Lord Byron himself and he takes a more forceful, more objective role in the narration in which he often interjects with his personal opinions, feuds, and biographical details.
The story of Don Juan is told in the past tense but Lord Byron makes frequent references to contemporary events and people in the present tense.
