This week, Elaine Hobby and Claire Bowditch were invited to take part in a video discussion, on the A Bit Lit YouTube channel, to discuss Behn’s writing and the new edition.

In an engaging conversation with Dr Tom Harrison, Elaine and Claire discuss The Rover, some of Behn’s other plays, her prose, and the challenges and joys of editing her work over the last few years. We hope it’ll prove interesting and a useful resource especially for those less familiar with Behn and/or the perils(?) of literary editing.

Here at the Behn project, we’re very grateful to be able to contribute to the ABitLit YouTube channel, which was set up in UK Lockdown 1 in spring 2020 and seeks to provide ‘a platform for research and creativity’. Check out their website for more information, and see their YouTube channel for many other brilliant videos, talks and Q&As.
