Examining the postcolonial applications of Aphra Behn's re-entry into the literary canon, this edition presents seven 18th-century versions of the play and one poem. All texts are supplemented by original paratextual commentary, if that is known, and prefaced by a brief editorial commentary. The tradition of stage adaptations of Oroonoko clearly shows the responsiveness of this series to studies of authorship, gender, genre and theatricality, class and race.
