    1. 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 [...]

    2. This could have been a great drama / genuine redemption story, if the author had not tried to make it a comedy and give us such a forced ending.

    3. A short play, adapted from Kotzebue by Mrs. Inchbald, who explains in a preface that she worked from a literal translation from the German, modifying it for the English stage.Of course, it is worth reading, if only to understand what the characters in MANSFIELD PARK are on about:" Simplicity, indeed, is beyond the reach of almost every actress by profession. It requires a delicacy of feeling which they have not. It requires a gentlewoman—a Julia Bertram. You will undertake it, I hope?" turning [...]

    4. This 1798 adaptation by Elizabeth Inchbald of the German play Das Kind der Liebe by August von Kotzebue was a surprisingly quick and easy read. The play, about an unwed mother and her illegitimate son, is in some aspects a typical melodrama but the morality advocated isn't of the Victorian variety. I downloaded this from Project Gutenberg because I am rereading Mansfield Park and this is the play that Tom Bertram and the others decide to put on. Jane Austin's contemporary readers would have been [...]

    5. Rereading Mansfield Park, and stopped along with Fanny to read the play this time. Poor Edmund, not quite knowing the source of his own distaste.Now, with the family reunited and the utterly superfluous Count (with his 2-and-40 lines) disposed of, back to Mansfield Park.

    6. This play, first published a couple of hundred years ago, raises some interesting moral questions, but is really only known today for being the play that they plan to act out in Mansfield Park. And that's the only reason why I read it! It was neat to see the real story behind Agatha and Amelia and Anhalt that is talked about in Jane Austen's novel - now I have to go back and reread MP!

    7. See more of my book reviews on my blog, Literary FlitsIn her Preface, Mrs Inchbald relates the changes and cuts she made to von Kotzebue's original Das Kind der Liebe which is why I have reviewed Lovers' Vows in her name rather than as a translation of his work. I understand that much of the essential narrative is the same, but deep multi-page German speeches were condensed to just three or four English lines and the ending was changed so I suspect that reading Lovers' Vows is much like watching [...]

    8. Loved it. I've come to love all things Inchbald. She was such an incredible woman and a crucial intellectual in the radical Jacobin scenario; her story is so fascinating and her plays are engaging and modern (adore her feminist views). Will slowly catch up on other comedies of hers.

    9. What a fantastically compelling play!! Possibly my favourite thing I've discovered during fields. Well-paced, well-plotted, and full of delightful quips and moving monologues. Made me want to re-read Mansfield Park just to admire how perfect it is for that novel, and made me want to see it staged.

    10. I'm re-reading "Mansfield Park." I decided to read the play at the same time as Fanny. I think we were both shocked at the choice of this play for a "home" theater production. It's a total piece of trash, but fun to be able to quickly read and follow the plot line of the novel.

    11. This story is a fairly paint-by-numbers standard melodrama. And yet I found it surprisingly more clever and funny than I was expecting. Definitely worth the read, and something I anticipate revisiting in the future.

    12. Perché Jane Austen scelse questa commedia per Mansfield Park? Cosa avevano da obiettare Fanny e, in un primo momento, Edmund alla scelta di questa commedia?Diciamo che già sul titolo tedesco dell'opera da cui è stata tratta questa piece teatrale, Das Kind der Liebe (Il figlio dell'amore), ci sarebbe da obiettare. L'opera infatti doveva essere rappresentata a Mansfield Park da numerose signorine nubili, e non era bene che venissero messe in contatto con una situazione che all'epoca sarebbe sta [...]

    13. Like almost everyone else in the world, I only read this play because it figures strongly in the plot of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. The play is a bit silly and moralistic for readers more than two centuries removed from its origination. I think, however, it might work today if produced as a kind of farce. In my mind, I'm trying to cast my favorite local thespians in the various parts. Alas, one of the best of them, Hugh Metzler, has passed on. Still, it does treat, as does Mansfield Park, the [...]

    14. In its day, Lovers' Vows was supposed to be a little racy and controversial. A woman is left destitute because she had an illegitimate child, and 20 years later meets up with the father of the child who is trying to keep his daughter from his marriage marrying a man who has illegitmate children.The play is probably most famous because it was the play that was to performed in Austen's Mansfield Park, until Sir Thomas returned and put an end to the impropriety.

    15. Reminded me of a cheap slapstick comedy. As many others stated before me, I read it since it was mentioned in Mansfield Park and was supposed to be a scandal that they performed it, so I was curious.It's an over-dramatized 18th century play, however I guess it can be commended for broaching subjects that for those times were completely unacceptable to mention, esp. for a woman to do so.I'm glad I read it, but won't be doing so again. Once was enough.

    16. This is a truly dreadful play adapted from a German original which I suspect was equally poor. The characters and plot are unconvincing. The comic butler is painful and the ending an appalling sentimental tableau. However it's thoughtto be the play that features in Mansfield Park, which may explain Thomas Bertram's opposition to modern theatricals.

    17. I was very excited when I found this play. I had only heard about it from "Mansfield Park" and was not sure if it was a real play. I found it very entertaining and a quite, light read. I highly recommend this novel for Jane Austen and regency era fans.

    18. Ridiculous and revealing when read as a companion piece to Mansfield Park. The Count and butler are hilarious, but the overall plot is melodramatic and silly. I'm glad to have read it, but it was really ridiculous.

    19. Funnier than I thought it would be. No wonder Tom Bertram wanted to be the Rhyming Butler--and *thank goodness* Mrs. Inchbald saved him (the Butler, that is) from his "dangerous insignificance"!

    20. As a modern reader it's pretty funny to read this when one thinks of all the bother it caused in Mansfield Park, lol.

    21. Classic play. 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!

    22. The text isn't half bad and neither are the readers. LibriVox dramatic readings tend to have audio issues, but everyone working on this had a decent mike.

    23. I probably liked this more than I should have, but it was just so ridiculously dramatic that I couldn't help it. ETA: I read it to see what all the fuss was about it in Mansfield Park.
