    A captivating and compelling story, Oroonoko is the tale of its title-bearing character who was born into both slavery and a royal lineage. Oroonoko is being held captive in Suriname, South America in the 1660s, despite the fact that he is the prince of Coramantien. Oroonoko swiftly becomes the leader and new general after a bloody battle and finds himself in a tangled love triangle. He is then enslaved, tortured, and neglected, but he never stops searching for his first true love. A true glimpse into the strength and grit of the human spirit, Oroonoko is a must-read.

    For much of history women have been seen rather than heard. Their thoughts, their views have lain too long in the shadows of our culture. Whilst this traditional view has some merit, it is not entirely accurate. Here, gathered together in these volumes, we can, through their words, experience their lives; we can hear their voices, their thoughts, joys, loves and losses. For the female poet there was always the confining hand of men to instruct that their time was perhaps spent more productively elsewhere. These lines, these gilded verses, often protest otherwise.
