Scope and content

Glastonbury Festival School. - Asks if the Trevelyan translations are dear: if not, could he have the publisher's name, and they could perhaps use his "Antigone" or "Trachiniae" if he has translated those plays. If Dickinson does not want to discuss religion in the plays, Boughton would appreciate him talking about 'the rhythmical question', but would prefer him to stay with the original topic. Asks if he could borrow the "Trachiniae" if it is expensive; this is the play which will be performed on August 12. Has considerably amended the translation by Plumtre [sic: Plumptree]: asks Dickinson to discuss this in the lecture if he objects; his own priority is to make the plays 'living things'.
