everyman: morality play
which phrase in this excerpt from the play everyman refers to god's judgment of people's souls after their death?
messenger: . .
ye think sin in the beginning full sweet,
which in( the end) causeth thy soul to weep,
when the body lieth in clay.
here shall you see how fellowship and jollity,
both strength, pleasure, and beauty,
will fade from thee as flower in may.
for ye shall hear, how our heavenly king
calleth everyman to a (general reckoning):
give audience, and hear what he doth say.
god: i perceive here in my majesty,
how that all the creatures be to me unkind,
living without dread in worldly prosperity:
of (ghostly sight) the people be so blind,
drowned in sin, they know me not for their god;
in worldly riches is all their mind,
they fear not( my righteousness), the sharp rod;
(my law that i shewed), when i for them die
hopefully this !
explanatithe story "two kinds" , revolves around a strict relationship between a mother and daughter. the mother tries very hard to make sure her daughter jing mei , is successful in life and lives up to her full potential. the story explores alot of different themes. though , there is one theme that really stands out. you cant force someone to be something that their not.
jing mei's mother was an immagrant from china. she moved to the united states to give her daughter , jing mei , a better and successful life for her. and being raised in china with their strict rules and striving to be perfect took a toll on her and her daughters relationship. she pressures her daughter to be great and perfect all the time but it gets really hard for her to live up to her mothers standards. her mother believes that jing mei can be a child prodigy and prepares her to be and act like one. furthermore , the story ends with jing mei getting everything off her chest and seeing the dissappointment in her mothers eyes as she finds out her daughter has not lived up to her full potential. and her mother has finally gained an understanding of her daughter.
