The Seven Ages Of Man Featured William Mulready Print

The Seven Ages Of Man

Engraving by H. Bourne, based on a painting by William Mulready called The Seven Ages of Man (1838) illustrates Jaques speech from the second act, scene 7, of William Shakespeare play As You Like It, 1838. The engraving originally appeared in Charles Knight's two-volume Imperial Edition of The Works of Shakespere, published between 1873 & 1876. The speech reads as follows: 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, In fair round belly with good capon lined, 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 saved, 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. (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
