The rover by Aphra Behn( Book )

163 editions published between 1677 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot follows the fortunes of opposing lovers, one a woman of quality masquerading as a courtesan and one a wandering rake whose philandering days end when he falls in love with her. Several near-rapes and the tragic case of a jilted courtesan, another character in the play, balance the comic treatment of sexual politics in the seventeenth century
Oroonoko, or, The royal slave by Aphra Behn( Book )

92 editions published between 1688 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aphra Behn's Oroonoko, the story of an African prince's enslavement by British colonists and his journey from West Africa to the Caribbean, is the first literary work in English to portray the global interactions of that interlocking structure that came to be known as "the triangular trade." This edition features a generous selection of thematically organized historical materials that illuminate the three corners of the Atlantic triangle: West Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe. Excerpts from contemporary literary works by Ben Jonson, John Dryden, Richard Steele, and Daniel Defoe enrich our understanding of the literary contexts for Behn's portrayal of "blackness" in Oroonoko, and selections from later dramatizations of Oroonoko demonstrate the evolution of British attitudes toward racial difference in the century following the publication of Behn's work."--Jacket

Love-letters between a nobleman and his sister by Aphra Behn( Book )

58 editions published between 1684 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Love-Letters depicts the desire for erotic domination at the heart of aristocratic Restoration culture - possibly of any culture, ' writes Janet Todd in her Introduction. As the novel unfolds, the innocence of Behn's young protagonist Silvia, evident in the sincerity and passion of her love-letters, is undermined; seduction is followed by disillusionment, and Silvia transforms herself into a female rake, bent on conquest rather than love. Portraying a world in which individual appetite rules and all authority is in doubt, Love-Letters brilliantly dramatizes the perverse and anarchic nature of desire
