Behn: Oroonoko

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
A vivid love story and adventure tale, Oroonoko is a heroic slave narrative about a royal prince
and his fight for freedom. The eponymous hero, Oroonoko, deemed royalty in one world and
slave in another, is torn from his noble status and betrayed into slavery in Surinam, where he is
reduced to chains, fetters and shackles. But his high spirit and admirable character will not be
suppressed… The book was groundbreaking at the time and is considered to be one of the first
novels written in English. Its condemnation of slavery and Europeans, and striking portrayal of
sexuality and violence, shrouded Behn’s name in controversy for years after it was published.
