Well depends on what you mean by desire (for love, or other stuff)

Don Juan is a LONG epic about desire (amongst other things)

Yes I studied Don Juan at A Level :yep:

You could also look into Beowulf, there's quite a few strands about desire running in it!

Oh really? I'm guessing Literature? What exam board and was it for coursework or exam?

If you had to read one or the other based on desire which one would you pick?

Also, did you have to read the WHOLE thing?!

Yes English Literature. It was for A level coursework but can't remember exam board or anything!

Personally Don Juan is more desire to me.

Nah I only read cantos 1-4
