In this study, we compare the works of Jacinto Grau and Gonzalo Torrente Ballester -El burlador que no se burla(1927) and Don Juan(1963), respectively- with the exemplary works of Don Juan, El Burlador de Sevilla y convidado de piedra of Tirso de Molina and Don Juan Tenorio of Jose Zorrilla. As we know, through the works of Tirso de Molina and Jose Zorrilla, two fundamental elements of Don Juan works have been developed: the depravation of the protagonist and the double invitation of stone. But in the works of Jacinto Grau and Gonzalo Torrente Ballester, Don Juan becomes a seducer, not a mocker, and the anecdote of the stone`s invitation disappears. In previous works, the double invitation episode carried out the function of punishment against the threat of social structure and blasphemy. However, in the two works of the twentieth century, when modernity is built, the story of the double invitation is replaced by another because it is not scientific. Also, by the development of psychoanalysis, the protagonist becomes the focus of interest. The protagonist of the works of writers of the twentieth century neither deceives nor mocks women. In addition, the hero of Torrente Ballester is very religious and intelligent. The novelist invented a new myth through a reinterpretation of Don Juan.
