      Once you get accustomed to the language it s an entertaining but thought provoking read about the inevitability of death for every man woman child Death is depicted as a journey that one embarks on suddenly and will never return from that much we all know The play also makes an effort to describe what happens after we die, and that is we give an account to God of all the things we did with the life He lent us.In the same vein the play emphasizes that not only is our very life lent to us from God [...]

      I don t normally read anything from this time period which may be why I didn t really enjoy this play

      I love this play I love the symbolism, the word usage fascinated me when I first read it for a literature class My favorite part from it is when God speaks concerning materialism How that all creatures be to me unkind, living without dread in worldly prosperityIn worldly riches is all their mind, they fear not my righteousness the sharp rod It is very poignant for this time in our world How materialistic we have come It fascinates me that this play was written many many hundreds of years ago, an [...]

      Charming and delightful required reading I love it when that happens This edition focuses on miracle plays as they were written for performance from the English cycle from about early 14th to late 16th century Miracle plays were not only used for entertainment but also as a form of Christian education for laity before literacy, printing and or state law contributed to decreasing performance although Everyman was still being performed by the end of Elizabeth I reign This edition is highly readabl [...]

      backdrop to the backdrop i am going to salzburg in a few months, so i ve been learning about it, so I watched a video about the Salzburg music festival, and saw footage of modern day performances of the the German version of this medieval play everyman Jedermann It fascinated me, so i ve read the English version of the play, as well as the other mystery plays in the book It comes as a shock to remember that one of the values of christianity USED to be that a good Christian was supposed to not be [...]

      Not that good I only read a couple of the plays, and they were not enjoyable They are plays about different bible stories, like Noah s flood and the crucifixion The play Everyman was decent It s about Everyman trying to take his strength, goods, beauty, etc with him at death, but all that he could take was his good deeds Overall two stars.

    8. Hannah on said:

      I didn t read all of the plays in this, but I very much liked the Biblical narratives They were funny and to the point Everyman was also very enjoyable and had a very universal message The personification of ideas were applicable to every man.

    9. Lizzytish on said:

      This review is only about the Everyman play I would prefer to see it than read it It s a good universal message about how short life is and you can t take anything with you Our lives should be led in a way that serves others good deeds and not self.

      Many of the medieval plays performed at York pageants are included in this collection.

      This was a real treat to read I m most definitely going to read it again at some point.

    12. Michael Barry on said:

      Everyman is one of those stories that captures the essence of human existence.

    13. Brian on said:

      This is very interesting from the standpoint of development of literature and of the ideas of Christianity at the time But from a pure enjoyment perspective, it ranks pretty low.

    14. Kevin Larsen on said:

      Morality Plays using the Bible and Christianity in Medieval times A very interesting take on how to instill morality onto the public and children.

    15. Carl on said:

      not much to say but that it was class required i think i saw the wors and did not do the book the justice that it most definitely deserves may revisit in future but for right now

      Quite an adorable and amusing play of a stolen sheep on the night of the nativity.
