comment A Vowel Shift Question
You are still being condescending (and very much so). Anyway, I think @sumelic's answer below (which I have upvoted) suffices to explain why I was puzzled at your supposition that all of Don Juan is supposed to have perfect rhymes. I was curious to know who (other than you) supposed this. I have my answer and do not wish to engage you anymore.

@Ricky: The scare quotes enclosing the word sources imply sarcasm. Your telling me that it's a good idea to learn things (as also the assumption that I haven't read Byron) is condescending.

@Ricky: The sarcasm and condescension in your comment are unnecessary and not inoffensive. If you don't have sources, just say it. Also, when you say "supposed to," it is natural for others to ask who it is is doing the supposing.

@Ricky: It's an interesting question. You say that "all of Byron's Don Juan is supposed to rhyme." Could you cite a source?
