dc.description.abstractWhen does editing become censorship? This article focuses on the editing practices for the English productions of Václav Havel’s plays, arguing that these practices transformed the plays into political emblems of the Cold War period. Once politicized, the plays became commercially viable; the article questions if such editing was a form of market censorship. In addition, the elision and derision of the female translator, Vera Blackwell, raises questions about gender censorship during the Cold War period.en_US
dc.description.abstractQuand la révision devient-elle de la censure? Cet article examine les révisions effectuées sur les pièces de Vaclav Havel en vue de leur représentation en anglais et soutient que ces pratiques de révision ont transformé les pièces en emblèmes politiques de la période de la Guerre froide. Une fois politisées, les pièces sont devenues commercialement viables. Cet article examine la possibilité que la révision constituait une forme de censure exercée par le marché. En outre, la façon dont la traductrice Vera Blackwell, a été occultée et dénigrée, soulève des questions quant à la censure visant les femmes pendant la période de la Guerre froide.en_US
