This book is an edited text of Oroonoko, a seventeenth-century novel of love, passion, and the struggle for human dignity written by England's most eminent woman playwright, poet, and novelist of the day. The novel tells the story of a great African warrior who falls victim to treachery. As a result, he finds himself a slave in what is now Dutch Guinea. As an emancipation novel, the work gives insight into slave practices in both Africa and the New World Colonies.
