Love-Letters Between a Nobleman and His Sister

By Aphra Behn
Free
Book Description

Large Format for easy reading. Considered by many to be the first English professional female writer, Behn's works were unappreciated for years. She is now rightly regarded as a highly talented, innovative and prolific author. Her most famous work is a novel, Oroonoko, which tells the tragic love story of its eponymous hero, an African forced into slavery. Love-Letters Between a Nobleman and His Sister is an epistolary novel, (the first ever written) and an innovative and pioneering work. An exploration of the sexual politics of seventeenth century English society, the novel follows Sylvia's love for her brother-in-law, her sexual awakening and her inevitable downfall.
