    A morality play a religious allegory preached to the convertedEveryman 45 starsBasically a very long way of saying 'you can't take it with you' An otherwise happy person Everyman is told he's going to die soon so scrambles about trying to find anyone willing to accompany him on his terrifying final journey Family friends manifestations of money and pleasure all uickly find excuses and ultimately it's only Everyman's Good Deeds who willingly takes his hand It's a simplistic moral yes but an enjoyable read and I'd love to watch it performed some day if only to see the costume concepts for the metaphorical charactersThe rest of the plays bar the last are just episodes from the Bible and to a contemporary audience they may have been very compelling From my modern perspective however they were sorely lackingThe Deluge 25The story of Noah making a giant zoo boat The central comedy figure is his wife who thinks her husband is insane and refuses to get on the boat until the local gossips start panicking about the rain Also Noah's wife in Genesis the First Testament says the line 'By Christ not' and Noah says 'so thou are by St John?' Abraham Melchisedec And Isaac 25The play argues that the 'sacrificing' Isaac episode proves God is better than Abraham because when the time comes to sacrifice his own son Jesus he makes sure no lamb is shoved in the way first The Wakefield Second Shepherds' Play 35The misadventures of the shepherds just before they stumble upon the manger of Jesus This felt like a deleted scene from Life of Brian with a bumbling sheep thief trying to explain away a missing ewe in his house by claiming his wife gave birth to it The humour falls flatThe Coventry Nativity Play 35Considerably gory than the one I remember from school Includes mass infanticide Herod screaming and running through the audience and the Joseph doubting Mary subplot is resolved rather uicklyThe Wakefield Miracle Play Of The Crucifixion 25Basically a long dialogue of the torturers cackling about all the awful things they're doing to Jesus and yet it's still tasteful than Gibson's The Passion of the ChristThe Cornish Mystery Play Of The Three Maries 25Three Marys mourn Christ Mary Magdalene finds him in a garden The end Yay?The Mystery of Mary Magdalene and the Apostles 25Magadalene brings the good news of the Resurrection to the Apostles They all cheer save for Thomas who is a doubting Thomas and a cantankerous arshole to MagdaleneThe Wakefield Pageant Of The Harrowing Of Hell 25Jesus busts into Hell to take John the Baptist Adam and some other good souls to heaven bitch slapping Satan on the way It's not as awesome as it sounds and is the only play in this collection that remains in Middle English for some reasonGod's Promises 35A series of acts where God constantly wants to kill everyone is convinced not to and makes promises to certain mortals It's the only mildly interesting play besides Everyman here's the rundownAdamBe good and I'll let you have Jesus in several generationsNoahGod 'I will drown all of earth'Noah 'Oi I live here'God 'Alright you may live as you're so elouent How's your carpentry skills?'AbrahamGod wants to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah Abraham begs him not to so God agrees to spare the city if he can find fifty good souls amongst the bad Then Abraham basically barters with God asking what if there's only forty or thirty then twenty etc and at no point does God inflict him with boils or explosive diarrhea for this MosesMoses convinces God not to kill everyone if they follow the rulesDavidGod 'David you ignorant slut I curse you and wish death on the innocent people around you Don't worry through I promise one of your kids will be a fabulous king'Esaias God an all powerful deity and creator of the Universe is still whining that people don't love him but ends up promising the Messiah againJohn the BaptistGod realises all these threats of destruction are getting him no where so uses honey instead of vinegar and promises to send his considerably less hot headed or monstrous son to convince mankind to be goodBonus play St George 15Considering the utter slog of these plays I thought this would be a well deserved treat for me as I have a big soft spot for stories and ballads about our Patron Saint but I was uite wrongA Turkish Knight rushes into a tavern followed by Father Christmas seriously and the King of Egypt Then a man kicks open the door crying'Here come I St George From Britain did I spring'No he did fucking not mate sit your imposter arse back down A dragon shows up and Not St George kills it along with several people for no real reason Then a necromancing doctor appears and revives everyone just so Not St George can slay them again Finally as part of the actual script the actors beg for money from the audienceThis play has no morals no miracles and no pointHonestly I'd advise anyone to simply read Everyman on its own and ignore everything else in this book The rest is mediocre at best enragingly asinine at worst

    Everyman is an excellent play but Hickscorner had no discernible plot and the other two inclusions were just ok I won't be keeping this Dover Thrift Edition but do suggest you enjoy Everyman via Project Gutenberg

    the five stars are for everyman which is really pretty amazing it's funny and terrifying and immediately grabs you i don't think i looked up from the page once from the first line to the very end and actually surprisingly effective in making this reader at least actually consider the way he's living his life i don't know why i never read such an incredibly famous and ridiculously short and easy to read piece before; i think maybe i thought it was going to be dry and dull? but instead it's kinda like samuel beckett samuel beckett with hope maybe though that hope is not easily come by i can see myself reading this again and again i mean this is like chaucer type good though without irony really just incredibly vivid and i especially love the conversation he has with his worldly goods they are some tricky little bastardsthe other three plays in the collection on the other hand are well kinda boring though the second shepherds' play is legitimately funny in parts and the whole sheep baby thing is really WEIRD noah's flood is kind of charming in a school plays from the movie rush kinda way but the last play hickscorner ? dunnowhatsupwiththatbut yes everyman now i get it i totally understand where this guy's coming from

    This was shockingly the only version of The Everyman I could find in the system but I wanted to include it as it is a classic and I well enjoyed itI have included a uick summary belowThe messenger? Death The message? God has summoned you to stand before Him and give a reckoning of your life What do you do? The protagonist of this play the shocked and distraught Everyman faces this exact issue But he is granted a day's grace to gather together anyone who will travel with him and help him at his judgment As this moral allegory unfolds however poor Everyman learns that neither possessions nor accomplishments nor character traits will follow him to the grave He must face his reckoning alone Perhaps because Everyman's problem is our problem this play one of the earliest extant dramas in English still provokes thought and discussion nearly 700 years after it was written

  5. Ralph says:

    We must all suffer from one of two pains the pain of discipline or the pain of regret The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons” Jim RohnAs part of my uest to read classic plays I picked up Everyman for a uick read only 39 pages Everyman is a one act play that was written centuries ago The earliest English version dates from approximately 1520 It's amazing how relevant the play is nearly 500 years later although concerns of morality and mortality never really changeThe playpoem starts with Death visiting Everyman Naturally Everyman does not feel prepared for the day of reckoning and pleads for time Death denies the reuest; however he allows Everyman a little time to find someone to speak in support of him Everyman goes to Fellowship Cousin and Kindred asking for help and they all promise to help him with anything he needs When he tells them what he desires they all understandably renege on their promise He visits Goods who he has loved the most for surely he will go with him Everyman pleads with Goods to come and says Money maketh all right that is wrong Goods responds Nay Everyman I sing another song I follow no man in such voyages For and I went with thee thou shouldst fare much the worse for me; for because on me thou did set thy mind thy reckoning I have made blotted and blind That's good stuff right there Next he visits Good Deeds who hardly knows him and who is weak due to lack of attention Everyman says Therefore I come to you my moan to make; I pray you that you will go with me Good Deeds responds I would full fain but I cannot stand verily Everyman responds Why is there anything on you fall? Good Deeds says Yea sir I may thank you of all; if ye had perfectly cheered me your book of account now full ready had be Look the books of your works and deeds eke; oh see how they lie under the feet to your soul's heavinessFinally Everyman meets Knowledge and Confession who introduce him to others that can help him such as Discretion Five Wits Beauty and Strength In the end it is only Good Deeds that can go with him to plead his caseAs you can see from the couple examples I cited it is actually a fascinating read It is well worth thirty minutes of your time You'll thank me later

    Considering this is just a collection of four short medieval plays there's not much to review Props to Dover for putting this out just to get the plays in circulation; they're invaluable in studying theatre and the mindset of the medieval era Heavy hitters included are obviously Second Shepherd's Play and Everyman I say obviously because of course the whole world is as drenched in medieval drama as I amsorry about that These are the go tos for medieval theatre usually the ones you find in the anthologies and collections for unsympathetic high schoolers filling elective reuirements in their last semester why yes that IS how I got into medieval drama how did you know?The other two plays are the Chester version of Noah I think York is better personally and a play I'd never read called Hickscorner which is not in fact about the town gossip in Kentucky In fact I'm not really sure why it's called Hickscorner as the character Hickscorner is not really that important at all and in fact most of the book is about the conversion of Freewill and ImaginationOne of the fantastic things about medieval drama and these plays in particular is that they're fairly well written and they're funny Noah's wife is a wench who won't listen to her husband parallels anyone? Everyman's friends are so freaking shallow it's like watching Mean Girls Imagination is kind of a playa and the shepherd's are a littleslow on the uptake Also sheep So they're uick reads they're a lot of fun to performread out loud; yeah medieval drama is fun yo

    Decided to stop reading the book did not find it enjoyable The old English writing made my head hurt and I often did not understand what was being said Reminded me of why I relied on Cliff Notes so much in high school I would love to have a discussion with someone who rated this book 5 stars Did they really enjoy it that much or are they giving themselves the 5 stars for slogging through the thing?

  8. Amanda says:

    Good I found an interesting reference to migraines in the fourth play Hickscorner which is a rather bawdy play to start with I dare anyone to be able to read that section the whole Hickscorner play and keep a straight face

  9. Annie says:

    This morality tale is literally Poetry I am tempted to rewrite it in modern verse rhymes in place for the pure mental exercise

  10. George King says:

    This is what passed for drama in the Middle Ages Pretty scary if you're an illiterate peasant
