Lovers Vows A Play in Five Acts by Mrs.

Lovers' Vows (1798), a play by Elizabeth Inchbald arguably best known now for having been featured in Jane Austen's novel Mansfield Park (1814), is one of at least four adaptations of August von Kotzebue's Das Kind der Liebe (1780; literally "Love Child," or "Natural Son," as it is often translated), all of which were published between 1798 and 1800. Inchbald's version is the only one to have been performed. Elizabeth Inchbald (née Simpson) (1753–1821) was an English novelist, actress, and dramatist. Between 1784 and 1805 she had nineteen of her comedies, sentimental dramas, and farces (many of which were translations from the French) performed at London theatres.

Mrs. Inchbald's adaptation of Kotzebue's Das Kind der Liebe.

It is a quick read, and definitely sheds light on Mansfield Park. Melodramatic but not tedious.

I do not know why the role of Agatha was so preferable to that of Amelia. Julia Bertram says "... and as to Amelia, it is of all parts in the world the most disgusting to me. I quite detest her. An odious, little, pert, unnatural, impudent girl." There is something to be said for this.

Here is a sample of the play's wit. The Baron seeks to determine whether his daughter can love the buffoonish Count Cassel:

BARON. But do not you feel a little fluttered when he is talked of?
AMELIA. No. [shaking her head.]
BARON. Are not you a little embarrassed?
BARON. Don't you wish sometimes to speak to him, and have not the courage to begin?
BARON. Do not you wish to take his part when his companions laugh at him?
AMELIA. No—I love to laugh at him myself.
BARON. Provoking! Aside.] Are not you afraid of him when he comes near you?
AMELIA. No, not at all.—Oh yes—once. [recollecting herself.]
BARON. Ah! Now it comes!
AMELIA. Once at a ball he trod on my foot; and I was so afraid he should tread on me again.

The fact is, Amelia is already in love with Anholt, a clergyman who has been her tutor, and thus is immune to the dubious charms of Count Cassel. There is obviously a parallel situation in MANSFIELD PARK.

For a Baron, Wildenhaim is remarkably conscientious:

FREDERICK. They disown me, too—I am, they say, related to no one—All the world disclaim me, except my mother—and there again, I have to thank my father.
BARON. How so?
FREDERICK. Because I am an illegitimate son.—My seduced mother has brought me up in patient misery. Industry enabled her to give me an education; but the days of my youth commenced with hardship, sorrow, and danger.—My companions lived happy around me, and had a pleasing prospect in their view, while bread and water only were my food, and no hopes joined to sweeten it. But my father felt not that!
BARON [to himself]. He touches my heart.

The epilogue, to close on a historical note, is all about Nelson's victory at Trafalgar.
Today this play is most famous for being put on in Jane Austen's novel Mansfield Park.It is about a women named Agatha who was seduced by the future baron of the village and he didn't marry her and it's many years later and the child they had is grown,the baron married someone and she died and he is a widower with a daughter and has come back to the village,and Agatha is poor and her son has just come back and wants his birth certificate and finds out who his father is.

It is a quick nice little read and you understand even more why there is such a fuss about it being suitable to act in Mansfield Park.I enjoyed seeing more about the characters each person in Mansfield Park would have played and understand the play scene in Mansfield Park better for reading the play.If you are a Jane Austen fan and always wanted to know what was said in Lover's Vows I recommend this book.It is very short only 70+pages and I read it in one sitting.
Although rather simplistic, "Lover's Vows" is worth several laughs. Readers of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park may find this play enlightening. Amelia is delightful. The only truly interesting character.
Very pleased with this purchase.
I first came across this play in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park and I felt a desire to read the whole play for myself and I found it to be romantic and delightful. Along the same line as the fairy tales I grew up with. A happily ever after story.
perfect to fill out my understanding of Mansfield Park!
Thoroughly enjoyed this literature that got free advert through Jane Austen. I was surprised to see it end so soon. A fanfic is in order!
Finally got to read the risqué play from Mansfield Park.
