Publisher Comments:

In this collection Aphra Behn wittily negotiates the complexities and ironies of womens' roles in a society in which honor is a commodity. Candid and subtle, her poetry speaks with a distinctive, vigorous intelligence and satirical edge. This generous selection includes an introduction that sets her work in context, and provides notes on the text and suggestions for further reading.

Aphra Behn's versatile form and content of her translation, satires and songs, and her radical exploration of relationships between the sexes, set her apart from her contemporaries. She wittily negotiates the complexities and ironies of women's role in a society in which honour is a commodity.
