  • Narrator Of Oroonoko
    929 words
    Oroonoko In Oroonoko by Aphra Behn the narrator is also a participant in the action of the story. Behn uses the first person to tell the story however; she and the narrator exist as two separate entities.

It is unusual to imagine women of her time (circa 1640-1689) to have traveled as extensively as the author A phra Behn it seems must have traveled in order to describe so many diverse customs, landscapes and people.
