Excerpt: ABOUT THIS TRANSLATION I am describing this as an adaptation rather than a translation because I've taken more liberties with the text than is my normal practice when translating a play. While the work remains very faithful to the original, I've felt necessary to omit a few lines and include others for clarification purposes. I've also removed or changed a few references that might be taken as racist or anti?semitic. I do not believe that was the author?s intent, so removing this material is like removing a smudge or blemish on a larger work of art. Their presence detracts, their removal enhances. I'm speaking of no more than a half dozen lines. Probably, they would go unnoticed; but given the political circumstances of our times and rising anti?semitism I've chosen to suppress them. This is not, as with obscenity, something that is merely offensive to some. Racism has political consequences and I do not wish to add even a droplet to that poisoned stream. The political climate a few years ago was calmer and my decision might have been different in those days or in more happy times to come. In any event, the changes were extremely minor. The TRANSLATOR
