The Somonyng of Everyman (The Summoning of Everyman), usually referred to simply as Everyman, is a late 15th-century morality play. Like John Bunyan's 1678 Christian novel The Pilgrim's Progress, Everyman uses allegorical characters to examine the question of Christian salvation and what Man must do to attain it. The premise is that the good and evil deeds of one's life will be tallied by God after death, as in a ledger book. The play is the allegorical accounting of the life of Everyman, who represents all mankind. In the course of the action, Everyman tries to convince other characters to accompany him in the hope of improving his account. All the characters are also allegorical, each personifying an abstract idea such as Fellowship, (material) Goods, and Knowledge. The conflict between

  • Everyman (The Somonyng of Everyman, ou La Semonce de Tout-Homme) est une pièce de théâtre en moyen-anglais composée à la fin du XVe siècle et dont l'auteur est inconnu. Il s'agit d'une moralité, c'est-à-dire une pièce de théâtre qui met en scène des choix moraux ou existentiels sous forme allégorique. Dans cette œuvre, Everyman (« Tout-homme ») est confronté au compte-rendu de ses bonnes et mauvaises actions, qu'il doit tenter d'améliorer pour accéder au salut. Il demande successivement à plusieurs personnages, tous allégoriques, de bien vouloir l'aider dans sa quête.
  • Everyman è un morality play inglese del tardo XV secolo, all'incirca 1485. Di autore anonimo, è un dramma religioso di probabile derivazione di un altro lavoro intitolato Elckerlijc, di origine fiamminga. Nel testo allegorico è presente la personificazione delle Virtù e dei Vizi che sono in perenne contrasto tra loro, tipica del teatro medievale che traeva spunto dalla storia religiosa. Di tradizione orale verrà trascritta solo alla fine del XV secolo.

In the course of the action, Everyman tries to convince other characters to accompany him in the hope of improving his account. All the characters are also allegorical, each personifying an abstract idea such as Fellowship, (material) Goods, and Knowledge. The conflict between good and evil is dramatised by the interactions between characters. Everyman is being singled out because it is difficult for him to find characters to accompany him on his pilgrimage. Everyman eventually realizes through this pilgrimage that he is essentially alone, despite all the personified characters that were supposed necessities and friends to him. Everyman learns that when you are brought to death and placed before God all you are left with is your own good deeds.
