BeschreibungThe first woman in England to make her living by writing, Aphra Behn (1640-1689) combines memoir, exotic travel narrative, and romance to tell the story of the noble Oroonoko, a black man who begins life as a prince and ends it as a slave. Taken up by reformers in the long battle against slavery, reprinted and imitated countless times, the story of Oroonoko remains a popular tale.
PortraitAphra Behn flourished in the cosmopolitan world of the London playhouse and the court. It was she, Virginia Woolf wrote, "who earned [women] the right to speak their minds."
