Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

God's creations of man in a lyrical dramatization; Noah's cantankerous and hilariously funny wife refusing to leave without her friends; the Massacre of the Innocents

Miracle Plays were a popular form of entertainment throughout the Middle Ages, and part of the poetic and dramatic tradition on which Shakespeare drew.Everymandiscovers what you can't take with you when you go. He beseeches in turn friends, family (one pleads 'cramp in my toe'), possessions ('I follow no man in such voyages'), and finally falls back on moral and religious values.

The most comprehensive paperback edition available, with introduction and extensive notes.

Synopsis:

Part of the "Everyman" series which has been re-set with wide margins and easy-to-read type, this book includes marginal glosses and footnotes to explain difficult words and phraseology. It is a selection of 15th-century pageants which includes the play "Everyman".

Synopsis:

The Everyman Paperback Classics series offers the latest scholarship on the works of the world's greatest poets, writers and philosophers. Each edition includes a comprehensive introduction, chronology, notes, appendix, critical responses, and a text summary.
