Oroonoko and travel literature : race, class and gender

Abstract

This lesson provides a brief overview into the English travel narratives of the Restoration era and the 18th century, particularly in their relation to the international slave trade.

Topic discussed: • English travel narratives (precursors and the 18th century) • Basic comparison of Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe (1719) and Behn’s Oroonoko (1688) • Oroonoko (characters and plot) • Britain’s involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade • Slave (travel) narratives • Race and gender in Oroonoko
