Everyman

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

Death: ...In hell for to dwell, world without end. Lo, yonder i see Everyman walking; full little he thinketh on my coming; his mind is on fleshly lust and his treasure, and great pain is shall cause him to endure...

In these lines metioned by Death himself, he basically is telling the audience that God is very upset with Everyman. God does not appreciate the fact that Everyman is forgetting how he died for his life and Everyman is just worrying about love and money. Everyman is forgetting all about the man that gave his life for him to have a life. God wants him to go with Death. Everyman would have never thought that he would be going to leave life to go with Death. He does not seem any harm that he is doing with his money and women; he believes God just wants everyone to be happy. That is not the truth though, God wants every human to be happy, but to also do good deeds.

Good point. It's not enough simply to avoid doing harm.

BTW, can you describe for me exactly what happens when you try to use MTQuickpost? At any rate, thanks for taking the extra step of posting your comment.

Denamarie,

The lines you mentioned seem to be about punishment for some human shortcomings, aren't you glad the latter half showcases redemption?

Good points :)
