Lee Blake Humanities 12/7/09 Final Paper 1. The medieval morality play Everyman is a representation of every human’s life. The story is about Everyman’s journey though life, where he meets various characters and asks them to join Everyman on his journey. Death gives him one more chance to gather the things he needed for the grave. The names of the characters were named after the quality they represented Fellowship, Knowledge, Goods, and Kindred. The conflict of good and evil is represented though the character’s interactions. The only one that comes with Everyman to the end of his journey is Good Deeds. Represented by the Doctor, in the closing of the play, that provides an epilogue explaining that the moral of the play is that at your death a man will only have his Good Deeds to join him to beyond the grave. The story of Everyman has been used in countless amounts of other stories. The play Everyman is a representation of a life of a man, such as meeting friends and gaining knowledge though out a man’s life is very common, yet you can’t take them to the grave with you. With all the characters he meets though out the play are parts of everyman’s lives, and yet they do not come to the grave with him. Watching this play in the 15 th century would have been great motivator to live a better life. Reading this play I could not help but be moved with the symbolism of a man’s journey though life and the qualities that it takes to move on to heaven. Men who read this are now informed on their road to the promise land.
