English View all editions and formats Summary: Twice filmed with Michael Redgrave and Albert Finney and frequently revived. Andrew Crocker-Harris' wife Millie has become embittered and fatigued by her husband's lack of passion and ambition. On the verge of retirement, and divorce, Andrew is forced to come to terms with the platitude his life has become.
Then John Taplow, a previously unnoticed pupil, gives Andrew an unexpected parting gift: This edition also contains Harlequinade, a farce about a touring theatre troupe, written to accompany The Browning Version in a double-bill under the joint title, Playbill.
He seeks advice on the lower fifth, the year Crocker-Harris teaches, and how to control them. Crocker-Harris begins to relate to Gilbert his own sad experiences after Gilbert tells Crocker-Harris that the headmaster had referred to Crocker-Harris as the 'Himmler of the lower fifth'.
Crocker-Harris, who did not realize he was feared by the boys, is very disturbed by this title. Crocker-Harris's wife, Millie, is being unfaithful to him with a younger master named Frank Hunter, something that Crocker-Harris has been aware of, but has been ignoring.
After Taplow moves him by giving him an inscribed version of the Browning translation of Aeschylus' Agamemnon, he breaks down crying. Millie, his wife, shows her callousness at Crocker-Harris's emotional state, and Hunter breaks off the affair with her, instead turning his sympathies to Crocker-Harris.
Crocker-Harris informs him that he knew of Millie's affair with Hunter, as well as her previous ones, but despite this he does not wish to divorce her. As the play ends, Hunter makes plans with a reluctant Crocker-Harris to meet him at his new place of work, and an uplifted Crocker-Harris telephones the headmaster saying that he will make his speech after sports master, as is his right.
The "Browning Version" of the title is the reference within the story of Robert Browning's translation of the Greek tragedy Agamemnon. In the tragedy, Agamemnon is murdered by his wife, aided by her lover.
