Aphra Behn Studies by Janet Todd

Aphra Behn was England's first professional woman writer, but her status as a major author has only recently become clear. Between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries Behn was denigrated for her 'unwomanly' subject matter and intellectual immodesty. In the twentieth century she has been increasingly viewed as an important dramatist and poet of the Restoration and a founder of the English novel.This collection forms an important resource for those studying seventeenth century English literature and drama, and to those interested in the development of women's writing.
