Everyman: A Modern English Version
The English morality play "Everyman" was printed in 1475 but may be much older. It was a popular play in many countries, and there are versions in many other languages--no one really knows which came first. This modern English version tightens the action and preserves the linguistic playfulness and the philosophical seriousness of the original. Permission is granted for any performances of this version of the play.
Everyman's Talmud: The Major Teachings of the Rabbinic Sages
"To some readers of this book, the Talmud represents little more than a famous Jewish book. But people want to know about a book that, they are told, defines Judaism. Everyman's Talmud is the right place to begin not only to learn about Judaism in general but to meet the substance of the Talmud in particular . . . In time to come, Cohen's book will find its companion-though I do not anticipate it will ever require a successor for what it ...

Everyman and Other Miracle and Morality Plays (Dover Thrift Editions)

Vernacular miracle plays of England's Middle Ages were performed by lay people — many by trade guilds — unschooled in church Latin, but familiar with the biblical events upon which the dramas were based. Morality plays provided moral instruction, their principal characters vivid personifications of virtue ...

The fate of Roth's everyman is traced from his first shocking confrontation with death on the idyllic beaches of his childhood summers, through the family ...

No longer a man, but a hungry void, Ian Covey is a monster. David Tirado is a massive, hideous colony organism, a gestalt entity. The sum of Covey's discarded parts. A roiling, chaotic patchwork of vast and varied personalities, memories, and physical forms that used to be ...
