Perhaps the first long novel in the English language, this book is loosely based on the adulterous affair between Lord Grey, a prominent Whig noble closely involved in the Monmouth rebellion and the Rye House plot, and his sister-in-law, Lady Henrietta Berkeley.

Aphra Behn was a prolific Restoration - era playwright and one of England's first professional women writers. In 1663, she visited a Venezuelan sugar colony and met a slave trader, and what she saw there formed the basis for what is now her most famous work Oroonoko. Behn was a Catholic supporter and a Tory, a bisexual and a political spy.
