About the Author
Aphra Behn (c.1640-89), or Astrea, was a poet, author and playwright, and is often cited as being one of the leading lights of the Restoration period. She is remembered today as being one of the first English women to earn a living with her pen, as well as for her work as a spy for Charles II. Her best-known works today are a Restoration drama, The Rover, and Oroonoko, or, The Royal Slave, a short work of fiction.
Alan James Hogarth is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Leicester. Working with Mel Evans, and using the latest techniques in computational stylometry, he has investigated the authorship of drama, poetry, prose and letters traditionally attributed to Behn. He has also been involved with the computational aspects of the Thomas Nashe project, and contributed to Visualising English Print, building and running experiments on a corpus of early-modern scientific texts.
