Dr. Andrew Higl of Winona State University
The 1600 edition of Henry V: Badly Remembered or Strategically Abridged

Andrew Higl is an Associate Professor of English at Winona State University, where he teaches early English literature. He is the author of the book Playing the Canterbury Tales: The Continuations and Additions. He specializes in book history, exploring the relationship between the production and reception of literary works through the surviving documents. Today’s talk explores the once-called “bad quarto” of Henry V. Higl asks us to consider the following: taking into account recent theories that the quarto’s shortened text represents the version that would have been performed in 1599, how do the abridgments of this version change how we understand and interpret the play?
