Choosing Good Editions

Maoili, Roger. (2020).  How to Choose Good Editions for your Literature Classes.

I created this video to help students tell the difference between good and bad editions for pre-1900 literature. I decided to do it after seeing an increasing number of students buying those print-on-demand editions that Amazon now puts at the top of their search results. Such editions are copy-pasted from Project Gutenberg and printed without revisions or any editorial apparatus. If you've had students show up with those versions, something like this might be helpful. - Roger Maoili, Department of English, University of Florida
