This is not something I will be likely to read ever again. It is a play staged as a captivity narrative. White women are held captive by a "Moorish" sultan...blah, blah, blah.
An old American play written by a woman about American captives on the Barbary coast. Some solid feminist ideas, but full of racism. Not a win.

Susanna Rowson, née Haswell (1762-1824) was a British-American novelist, poet, playwright, religious writer, stage actress and educator.

Rowson was the author of the novel Charlotte Temple - the most popular bestseller in American literature until Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin was published in 1852.
