Comment:        SHK 11.0988 Book Announcement: Marlowe

Idle question: why would you feel the need to produce a version of 'Jew'
by Marlowe which 'subverted its anti-semitism'?

Isn't that a bit like staging Lear without his dividing of the kingdom
to avoid denigrating the irrationalities of the elderly?

I am just curious about the philosophy behind what sounds suspiciously
like a 'bowdlerisation'?
