That the two translators are also both Tarot experts and deeply understand the dynamics of divination only lends extra poignancy to the latter theme - further it is worth noting that one of them, Rachel Pollack, is also a distinguished fantasy and science fiction writer (her Unquenchable Fire has won the Arthur C. Clarke Award). Her linguistic imagination is put to good use in this version of the classical tragedy, and the scholarship of David Vine (as detailed in the extensive translators' notes) ensures that the text stays true to the original.
