Ingomar, the Barbarian free pdf Excerpt from Ingomar, the Barbarian: A Play in Five Acts Perhaps there is no question asked oftener than "Who wrote 'Ingomar'?" To the English-speaking public the name of Maria Lovell, whose adaptation into English is the best-known version of this picturesque and popular play, is familiar enough, but the name of its German author seems practically unknown. "Der Sohn der Wildniss," as "Ingomar" was known in the original, was written by Eligius Francis Joseph, Baron von Munch-Bellinghausen, who was known to the literary world under his nom de plume, Friedrich Halm. He was born at Cracow, then a part of the Austrian dominion, in 1806, and his father held high office at court, being finally Counsellor of State under the Emperor Francis II. "Der Sohn der Wildniss" was not its author's first work, but had been preceded by half a dozen successes- it is, however, his best-known play, and has been done into Danish as well as English, and succeeded in Copenhagen as well as it did in Vienna, in London, and all over America. It was written in 1842, and the first English version of it was not the one which is so familiar to us today, but was a straight translation, made by William Henry Charlton, and called "The Son of the Wilderness." This translation Halm highly complimented- but Maria Lovell's adaptation was the one first used in London, where it was produced at the Drury Lane Theatre, in June, 1851, by James Anderson, who had just become the manager of that theatre, and who was the original Ingomar, with Miss Vandenhoff as the first Parthenia. The play was a great success, but did not save Anderson from financial disaster. The first Ingomar died on March 3, 1895. The play had its first production in this country in December, 1851, being brought out simultaneously at the Bowery and Broadway Theatres.
