but one who is making an adaptation should be allowed to aim at brevity of expression and to forgo complete treatment of the matter.
but the one who recasts the narrative should be allowed to strive for brevity of expression and to forego exhaustive treatment.

but the one who recasts the narrative should be allowed to strive for brevity of expression and to forego exhaustive treatment.
forsooth for to (pur)sue (or to follow) shortness of saying, and for to eschew out (pur)suings of things, is to be granted to the abridger.
