Product Description

Review

All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn, for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds. --Virginia Woolf

Viewed with a mind open to the political and social climates of its time, The Rover is a resoundingly funny lark, with a host of hearty and toothsome characterisations of the stereotypes of the day. --British Theatre Guide

About the Author

Aphra Behn (10 July 1640 16 April 1689) was a prolific dramatist of the English Restoration and was one of the first English professional female writers. Her writing contributed to the amatory fiction genre of British literature. Having worked as a spy for Charles II against the Dutch, Behn's meager income was lost when the king refused to pay her expenses. She turned to writing to make a living.

The Rover 5 Mar. 2000
By louise lowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Virginia Woolf said that all women together should let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn - for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds - well, within the Rover, her sexual politics are personified through the character of Angelica Bianca : and it makes for an intriguing read! Brandishing swords, embracing rape and finding their own individual identities in a society that veiwed women as second class subject, this remained the most frequently performed play right up until 1800!
Good 6 April 2013
