Freelance translator Williams (modern languages, U. of Reading) points out that she is dealing not simply with an original and a translated text, but also with the French and English versions of the stories that are under consideration. She draws from several existing translations of the stories, and appends English versions of de Sades Forville and Courval, and Villiers The Brigands. The text is double spaced.
