Having a special interest in anything to do with Don Giovanni (per Mozart) and related works, I had to read this, but the ideas Handke has about this archetypal figure don't seem to be worked out as coherently and thus as convincingly as they might be. The Don Juan story seems to me to be more about those with whom he has liaisons, so the focus on the man himself is perhaps the problem for me here.
