Reviews and discussions on Books we are reading in the groups Friday, 15 May Introductions to the Play: The Lovers Vows Wordsworth, Jonathan. Fifty Books from the Romantic Period Oxford: Woodstock Books,  pp.
Lovers' Vows has a strange half-life in English literature, known to readers of Jane Austen as the play that all the fuss was about in Mansfield Park, but seldom read or placed in its original context.
Inchbald points out indespite the great number of German plays being translated, 'no person of talents or literary knowledge' had undertaken Kotzebue's Das Kind der Liebe Child of Love since its publication in Her explanation - interesting in the light of Mansfield Park - is that the play is, in the original, discordant with an English stage.
In particular, 'Amelia's love [as portrayed] by Kotzebue is indelicately blunt' p. Southey's view, expressed the following year, is that, 'though German plays have always something of the ridiculous', Kotzebue is possessed of 'unsurpassed and unsurpassable genius'.
His work, however, has invariably a political message: I wonder his plays are acted here; they are so Jacobinical in tendency- They create Jacobinical feelings, almost irresistibly. In every one that I have yet seen But even when adapted, the play remains an attack on old prejudice and principle.
Amelia's directness is the central fact. It can be rendered less 'blunt', but nothing can make it by Austen's standards 'delicate': Amelia [to her less-than-aristocratic tutor]: It is my father's will that I should marry - It is my father's wish to see me happy - If then you love me as you say, I will marry; and will be happy - but only with you.
Love and integrity are what matter. Her 'indelicacy' is innocent, but there can be no doubt that she is defying class, defying parental authority, defying the taboo which says that a woman shall not make the running in matters of love.
To judge from Inchbald's excessive rectitude at the time of Godwin's marriage to Mary Wollstonecraft inshe was not one to write these matters off as 'old prejudice'. Nor would she be unaware of making a political statement.
She must have been able to accept Kotzebue's jacobinical tendency, as to Southey's surprise British audiences accepted it. This despite the threat of French invasion inand a backlash against radical thinking.
After its run at Covent Garden, the play was staged frequently in London and elsewhere: Austen knows Lovers' Vows extremely well, and assumes that her audience does so too among her characters, Fanny stands out as not having read or seen it.
It is important that Edmund and Fanny, as representatives of the author, are against any theatrical presentation whatever.
