[Transcriber's Note:This e text comes in two forms: Latin 1 and ASCII 7. Use the one that works best on your text reader. In the Latin 1 version, French words like "étude" have accents and "æ" is a single letter. If you see any garbage in this paragraph and can't get it to display properly, use the ASCII 7 or rock bottom version. All necessary text will still be there; it just won't be as pretty.In the printed book, all notes were grouped at the end of the volume as "Notes on the Text" and "Notes: Critical and Explanatory". For this e text, notes have been placed after their respective plays. The Notes as printed give only page and line numbers; act and scene designations shown between marks were added by the transcriber. Labels such as "Scene IIa" refer to points where the scene description changes without a new scene number.The critical notes include a few cross references to other volumes of the Complete Works. Where appropriate, these texts are quoted after each play's Notes, before the Errata. The "N.E.D." of the Notes is now generally known as the OED.Except in the Errata lists, all brackets are in the original.Typographic note: In the printed book, all references to plays give the Act in lower case Roman numerals and the Scene in small capital Roman numerals; the two look identical except for the dots over the i's. For this plain text version, the conventional "IV.iv" sequence was used instead.] THE WORKS of APHRA BEHN Edited by MONTAGUE SUMMERS VOL.
