About this product
- DescriptionOnce merely a footte in Restoration and eighteenth century studies and rarely taught, Orooko; or, The Royal Slave (1688), by Aphra Behn, is w essential reading for scholars and a classroom favourite. It appears in general surveys and in courses on early modern British writers, postcolonial literature, American literature, women's literature, drama, the slave narrative, and autobiography.
Part 1 of this volume, Materials, provides t only resources for the teacher of Orooko but also a brief chrology of Behn's life and work. In part 2, Approaches, essays offer a diversity of perspectives appropriate to a text that challenges student assumptions and contains t one story but many: Orooko as a romance, as a travel account, as a heroic tragedy, as a window to seventeenth-century representations of race, as a reflection of Tory-Whig conflict in the time of Charles II.
