What would He think today?

Anonymous, ''Everyman'' -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

GOD: I perceive here in my majesty, How that all the creatures be to me unkind,Living without dread in worldly prosperity: Of ghostly sight the people be so blind, Drowned in sin, they know me not for their God;...

Doesn't this quote seem so realistic? And once more, how timeless is this play? Clearly the author meant for this to apply to all man kind when he wrote it, but did he know that hundreds of years later, people would still be able to relate to it? And not only that, but couldn't you actually picture God saying this about people on earth today? I studied this play last year, so this is probably the fifth or sixth time that I have read it, and everytime I find something new that I hadn't picked up on before. I LOVE THE TIMELESSNESS OF LITERATURE! (How big of a loser am I thought? haha!)

Hey, I agree... There's nothing wrong with enjoying literature.

A loser? Hardly. Of course, I would say something like that... right? ;)

I'll continue to enjoy reading of your enthusiasm and personal investment in the readings.
