Love-Letters Between a Nobleman and His Sister
Published in 1684, Aphra Behn's Love-Letters Between a Noble-Man and his Sister is a fascinating novel written in epistolary form. Set in seventeenth century England, the narrative showcases the relationship between a nobleman, Lord Philander, and his naive sister-in-law, Sylvia. Behn beautifully portrays their emotional intimacy. The work is a blatant commentary on the hypocrisy of a society that forces people to pretend and deceive and draws attention to the deep gulf that existed between the sexes.
