Essay Topic

The writer and the work that I have chosen as a topic for my paper is Aphra Behn’s The Rover. My paper examines some of the expected rules for men and women and how men are favored in the society. Anne Russell suggests that the women in The Rover are forced to choose between marriage, prostitution or the convent and they use these positions to gain strength and independence. Behn uses comedy to present her view and to reveal the hypocrisy of men and the unfair system in which women are immersed.
