about this item

A landmark in the history of the novel, Oroonoko is among the earliest such works in the English language and its author, Aphra Behn, is often cited as the first professional woman writer. Originally published in 1688, this story of an African prince who is sold into slavery and becomes the leader of a rebellion is also one of the first fictional treatments of colonial and abolitionist themes.
