We've done this before, but there a lots of new members and I figured it was time again. I used to be katmom...because my name is Katherine(Kathi) and I'm a mom. When pcson was having marital difficulties I changed it so I would be more anonymous. No I'm Everywoman. The name reflects my love of literature and my career as a teacher. It also reflects my journey in life. Everyman, a short play of some 900 lines, portrays a complacent Everyman who is informed by Death of his approaching end. The play shows the hero's progression from despair and fear of death to a "Christian resignation that is the prelude to redemption."1 First, Everyman is deserted by his false friends: his casual companions, his kin, and his wealth. He falls back on his Good Deeds, his Strength, his Beauty, his Intelligence, and his Knowledge. These assist him in making his Book of Accounts, but at the end, when he must go to the grave, all desert him save his Good Deeds alone. The play makes its grim point that we can take with us from this world nothing that we have received, only what we have given.
