    A morality play a religious allegory preached to the converted.Everyman 4 5 stars Basically 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 journey Family, friends, manifestations of money and pleasure all quickly find excuses, and ultimately it s only Everyman s Good Deeds who willingly takes his hand It s a simplistic moral, yes, but A morality play a religious allegory preached to the converted.Everyman 4 5 stars Basically 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 journey Family, friends, manifestations of money and pleasure all quickly 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 see it performed some day, if only to see the costume concepts for the metaphorical characters.The 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 lacking The Deluge 2 5The 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 2 5The play argues that the sacrificing Isaac episode proves God is better than Abraham, because when it comes time to sacrificing his own son Jesus, he makes sure no lamb is shoved in the way first The Wakefield Second Shepherds Play 3 5The 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 flat.The Coventry Nativity Play 3 5Considerablygory 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 quickly.The Wakefield Miracle Play Of The Crucifixion 2 5Basically a long dialogue of the torturers cackling about all the awful things they re doing to Jesus, and yet it s stilltasteful than Gibson s The Passion of the Christ.The Cornish Mystery Play Of The Three Maries 2 5Three Marys mourn Christ Mary Magdalene finds him in a garden The end Yay The Mystery of Mary Magdalene and the Apostles 2 5Magadalene 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 Magdalene.The Wakefield Pageant Of The Harrowing Of Hell 2 5Jesus 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 reason.God s Promises 3 5A 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 rundown Adam Be good and I ll let you have Jesus in several generations.Noah God I will drown all of earth Noah Oi God Alright I promise you can live, as you re so eloquent How s your carpentry skills Abraham God 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 Moses Moses convinces God not to kill everyone if they follow the rules.David God 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 again.John the Baptist God 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 good.Bonus play St George 1 5Considering 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 quite wrong.A 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 audience.This play has no morals, no miracles and no point.Honestly, 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 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 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 it.I have included a quick summary below The 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 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 it.I have included a quick summary below The 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

    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 tonsJim RohnAs part of my quest to readclassic plays I picked up Everyman for a quick 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 neWe 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 tonsJim RohnAs part of my quest to readclassic plays I picked up Everyman for a quick 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 change.The play poem starts with Death visiting Everyman Naturally Everyman does not feel prepared for the day of reckoning and pleads fortime Death denies the request 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 wrongGoods 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 blindThat 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 meGood Deeds responds,I would full fain, but I cannot stand verilyEveryman responds,Why, is there anything on you fallGood 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 heaviness Finally 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 case.As 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 y 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 requirements 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 Imagination.One 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 quick reads, they re a lot of fun to perform read 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.

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