Aphra Behn was a British author, poet and playwright of the English Restoration era, who went on to become the first English woman to make a living out of writing. It was for her work as a writer that she became a literary role model for later women authors, writers and poets. Interestingly, a well-known and popular author of the mid-17th century England, Behn’s origin is somewhat indefinite. However, she soon rose above the anonymity and came into prominence in the Courts due to her wit and talent. She even served as a political spy for Charles II in Antwerp. Returning to England, she started writing to support a living. In her lifetime, she penned about nineteen plays, four novels and several short stories and poems; the decades of 1670s and 1680s being her most productive phase. Additionally, she translated several works from French and Latin. Each of her works was well received thus establishing her reputation as one of the most prolific and high-profile female writers. Though Behn wrote several plays, it is her work of fiction that has drawn more interest over the years. Nevertheless, her poems and plays have been equally applauded and appreciated
