The Conscious Lovers

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3 stars; 3 reviews)

As early as 1720 Steele spoke in the Theatre of "a friend of mine" who was lately preparing a comedy according to the just laws of the stage, and had introduced a scene in which the first character bore unprovoked wrong, denied a duel, and still appeared a man of honour and courage. This was clearly an allusion to the play eventually to be published as The Conscious Lovers. - Summary by G. A. Aitken.

Pretty good

(4 stars)

This was pretty good! Enjoyed it. Kind of confusing for a modern reader just because of the language, but mostly understood it and when it made sense i enjoyed it. enjoyable story. reminded me a lot of Shakespeare. :)
