Drama as Literature (EL 250)


3 Oct 2005

Anonymous, ''Everyman''

Here shall you see how Fellowship and Jollity, Both Strength, Pleasure, and Beauty, Will fade from thee as flower in May. For ye shall here, how our heavenly king Calleth Everyman to a general reckoning: Give audience, and here what he doth say.

I've posted a slightly annotated, modernized version of Everyman on the course website.

The play "Everyman" (in this form, modernized from the original Middle English) does not present a psychologically realistic character. Everyman is, instead, an abstraction -- that is, an allegorical figure, whose experiences and motives are meant to be as general and universal as possible.
