The Works of Aphra Behn

Edited by Janet Todd

“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 Wolf

“For at least three decades now, feminist readers and critics have lamented how male-dominated the canon of English literature is—especially the literature of earlier periods.  We now have a chance to do something about it.  Put these books on the shelves of libraries where they belong, where they will be taken into account in the future when [scholars] write papers and articles. . . . Every reader of the Women’s Review of Books can help bring full circle what Behn began so long ago, and what Janet Todd has documented so ably: the daring attempt of a woman to write, for her daily bread and for immortal fame.” —The Women’s Review of Books
