This article discusses the major differences between Elizabeth Inchbald's Lovers' Vows and August von Kotzebue's Das Kind der Liebe in order to assess in a comparative way what exactly it was that made Kotzebue's original play, to Inchbald's mind, so “unfit for an English stage.” The essay focuses on the dramatic differences and tries to assess in how far they can be read as signs of other differences, differences of a cultural, political, or ideological kind.
