Daniel Pigg's Essay on Oroonoko by Aphra Behn.

18025. Daniel Pigg's Essay on Oroonoko by Aphra Behn.

This paper critically reviews "Trying to Frame the Unframeable," Daniel Pigg's 1997 essay on the seventeenth century novella Oroonoko, and his claim that the title character's use of verbal and non-verbal language "represents a literary approximation of universal language theory." Although some aspects of the essay are found to be noteworthy, Pigg's arguments are for the most part weak, vague, trite, contradictory, and unconvincing. These flaws are attributed to Pigg's use of a superficial "postmodern" approach to literary criticism. KEYWORDS: literature criticism aphra behn oroonoko daniel pigg. MLA Style. 6 pages, 13 footnotes, 2 bibliographic sources. 1,431 words.
