Aphra Behn (1640-89) was both successful and controversial in her own lifetime; her achievements are now recognized less equivocally and her plays, often revived, demonstrate wit, compassion and remarkable range. This edition brings together her most important comedies in a single volume: The Rover, her best-known play; The Feigned Courtesans, a lively comedy of intrigue; The Lucky Chance, a comedy with a bitter edge, which takes a satirical look at marriage customs; and the dazzling and popular farce, The Emperor of the Moon. All the plays have been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation.

About the Author:


Jane Spencer is Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Exeter. She is also the editor of Behn's Oroonoko and other Writings in World's Classics.

Review:


"An affordable volume of Behn's major plays is long overdue. The endnotes are helpful in placing Behn in a literary tradition and the cultural milieu of her London. The text will be appropriate for a variety of courses: Woemn's Studies, period surveys, drama courses, etc."--Deborah Montuori, University of Missouri-Columbia


"This collection of four comedies by Aphra Behn is a welcome addition to the growing number of available works by 17th-century women authors."--Choice
