69 editions published between 1684 and 1997 in English and held by 1,129 libraries worldwide
'Love-Letters depicts the desire for erotic domination at the heart of aristocratic Restoration culture - possibly of any culture, ' writes Janet Todd in her Introduction. As the novel unfolds, the innocence of Behn's young protagonist Silvia, evident in the sincerity and passion of her love-letters, is undermined; seduction is followed by disillusionment, and Silvia transforms herself into a female rake, bent on conquest rather than love. Portraying a world in which individual appetite rules and all authority is in doubt, Love-Letters brilliantly dramatizes the perverse and anarchic nature of desire
