Short biography
Benjamin Heath, a town clerk of Exeter, with literary tastes, published notes on the Greek dramatists, and, in 1765, A Revisal of Shakespeare’s Text, “wherein the alterations introduced into it by the more modern editors and critics are particularly considered.” Heath attacked Pope, Hanmer and Warburton, but agreed that the public was under real obligations to Theobald. He himself was not so fortunate as to be furnished with the Shakespeare folios, still less the quartos; but he concluded that all readings deserving of attention were given by Pope or Theobald. –from The Cambridge History of English and American Literature in 18 Volumes (1907–21)
