Excerpt from Everyman: A Moral PlayWe may bring ourselves into relation with the motive of this play, says the late Mr. J. A. Symonds, in his Shakespere's Predecessors in the English Drama, by studying the wood-cuts in Queen Elizabeth's Prayer Book, or any one of the Dances of Death ascribed to Holbein. The frontis piece to Everyman' recalls one of those remorseless meditations on the grave. A finegentleman of the court of hennyvii. Is walking, with his hat upon his head and a chain around his neck, among the ¿owers of a meadow. Death, the skeleton, half clothed in a loose shroud and holding in his arm the cover of a sepulchre, beckons to this gallant from a churchyard full of bones and crosses. Life is thus brought into abrupt collision with the 'cold Hic jacets of the dead,' and him who rules there.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
