This illustrated edition of one of the earliest plays to be published in England and one of the earliest surviving playtexts (1522) is reprinted from the unique copy possessed by the Library of Trinity College, Dublin. A morality that handles the Ages of Man iconography, the play "provides an opportunity for inquiring into a late-medieval theatrical genre as well as the visual culture of the time." Appendices examine the play's verse structures, its dramatic doubling scheme, and its dialect; textual and critical notes and a glossary are also included.
