"But for a fantasy of Nathaniel Hawthorne, this play, of course, would never have been written ... Yet it would not be true, either to Hawthorne's work or my own, to classify 'The Scarecrow' as a dramatization of 'Feathertop.' ... My aim has been quite otherwide. Starting with the same basic theme, I have sought to elaborate it, by my own treatment, to a different and more inclusive issue ..."--Preface.
