Rereading Aphra Behn: History, Theory, and Criticism
University of Virginia Press, 1993 - Literary Criticism - 336 pages
Ever since Virginia Woolf proclaimed that all women writers should place flowers on her grave, Aphra Behn has slowly become recognized as the first Englishwoman to earn her living by writing. In this first book-length critical work on Aphra Behn, a range of contributors explore the ways in which Behn is now entering the canon of English literature and examine the significance of her writing in the contexts of both seventeenth-century English literature and contemporary debates in critical feminist theory.
