The anonymous 15th-century English morality play is considered the best of its genre, which formed a bridge between the medieval mysteries and secular Renaissance drama. It turns out it was not original, however, but was translated from a Dutch play that had been being performed for some time in the Low Countries. Here the two are presented on facing pages, with explanatory notes and textual to Everyman.
