Aphra Behn: The English Sappho.

SKU: 13687

Woodcock's biography and analysis is accompanied by his evaluation of the period through his distinctly libertarian sensibilities. He presents Behn to us as the first writer to publish a novel against slavery, the anticipator of Rousseau, women's emancipation, and the form of the modern novel. Behn's free loving life, not to mention her daring to write and live as if she were an equal with the men of her time, have obscured her place in history. This book does much to correct that error. 1989 but newly printed. Black Rose Books. Paper, 248 pgs. NEW. $10.00
