I - Elizabeth Inchbald

Posted by Claudia Moser on 10:00 AM in , ,

Another surprise I presume, not many have heard of Elizabeth Inchbald, but she was a prolific English novelist, actress, and dramatist. During the 18th century she published quite a lot, unusual for that time!

One of her most famous plays is called Lovers' Vows and can be found here, a Gutenberg project. Let me know what you think of the dialogues!

Nope, never heard of her. What a history lesson I am getting!

So interesting to learn about all these women writers through time.

I hadn't heard of her, but her play reminds me of the stereotypical Victorian melodramas!

Definitely never heard of her will look her up

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
