During the 19 years of her play writing career, Aphra Behn had far more new plays staged than anyone else. This book examines all her theatrical work, explaining her often dominant place in the complex theatrical culture of Charles II's reign, her divided political sympathies, and her interests as a free thinking intellectual. It also reveals her as a brilliant theatrical practitioner, who used the seen as richly and significantly as the spoken.
