  • 7. "All the world's a stage" is a monologue from William Shakespeare's As You Like It , spoken by the Jaques. It contains arresting imagery and figures of speech to develop the central metaphor: a person's lifespan being a play in seven acts.
    • The speech compares the world to a stage and life to a play, and
    • catalogues the seven stages of a man's life :
      • infant,
      • schoolboy,
      • lover,
      • soldier,
      • justice,
      • pantaloon and
      • second childhood.
    • It is one of Shakespeare's most frequently-quoted passages.
  • 8. AS YOU LIKE IT As You Like It is a comedy by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in 1599 or early 1600 and first published in the folio of 1623. It is about love in all its guises in a rustic countryside setting.
  • 9. Similar to Hindu mythology
    • In Vedas, life is divided in fours parts
    • The poem has similar meanings as in Vedic books describing how a person enacts in his whole life
    • Shakespeare divided it into seven parts
  • 10. "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms; And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
  • 11. In fair round belly with good capon lin'd, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side; His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion; Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything." — Jaques (Act II, Scene VII, lines 139-166)
  • 12. “ All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.”
  • 13. “ At first the infant, mewling and puking in the nurse's arms “ The First Age starts as being an infant, crying softly and innocently his mother’s arms knowing nothing of the world outside. ‘ Beginning of the act, beginning of a new life ’
  • 14. 2 School Boy
  • 15. “ And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school “ Then the infant grows up into a boy who goes to school every morning, “ unwillingly” though with his bag full of books. His disdain for school is shown as he goes “ creeping like a snail” in the school’s direction.
  • 16. “ And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow. “ The School Boy then evolves into a young man, full of energy who falls in love. Singing songs for the girl he loves. His inspiration is denoted by his focusing on such an inconsequential facial part. 3 LOVER
  • 17. 4 s ol di e r “ Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. “ After having done with all this, the Man now turns to his responsibilities to his nation. According to Shakespeare, in order to honour and protect his motherland, man has to play the role of a SOLDIER. He is eager to lay down his everything for the noble cause of his nation. He is fierce like a panther, full of strange oaths, brave and always seeking reputation. In his full enthusiasm, he is quite sudden and quick in quarrel.
  • 18. “ And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lin'd, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. “ By the fifth age, the man has a “fair round belly” and “severe” eyes with his beard trimmed and tamed, unlike the soldier’s scruffy beard. He is able to spout saws full of wisdom reflecting his valuable experience which he is keen to share.
  • 19. 6 P antaloon “ The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side; His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. ” SIXTH age, being that of a lean and thin OLD MAN in his ‘loose pantaloon’. The description of this man becomes quite vivid when Shakespeare says ‘ with spectacles on nose and pouch on side’. He further marks that the big manly voice of the man turns towards ‘childish treble, pipes and whistles in his sounds’.
  • 20. 7 The Last Act “ Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion; Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything..." The last stage is aptly referred to as “second childishness”. All the glory that he lived in all his life now comes to an end and will mark his exit. He is the state of being disregarded or forgotten. Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything…
