Description "Everyman depicts life in the world as a spiritual adventure; this abstract concept is made convincingly concrete through skillful use of human situations and vivid figures. By creating characters whose reasoning is psychologically sound and whose behaviour is recognizably realistic, the play manages to engage the interest and sympathy of the audience."

Further Information The play was written near the end of the fifteenth century. It is probably a translation from a Flemish play, Elckerlijk (or Elckerlyc) first printed in 1495, although there is a possibility that Everyman is the original, the Flemish play the translation. There are four surviving versions of Everyman, two of them fragmentary.
