From the Publisher:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Castle of Perseverance" is a c. 15th century morality play and the earliest known full-length (3,649 lines) vernacular play in existence. Along with "Mankind" and Wisdom, "The Castle of Perseverance" is preserved in the Macro Text (named after its owner Cox Macro) that is now housed in the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. "The Castle of Perseverance" contains nearly all of the themes found in other morality plays, but it is especially important (and unusual) because a stage drawing is included, which may suggest theatre in the round. One of the earliest drawings of a stage and set design is preserved in the manuscript. In the center of the drawing is the castle from the play''s title. The writing above the castle explicitly says that the audience should not sit in the area. At the base of the castle is a bed on which Mankind rests. The circle around the castle is labeled as a ditch, which the audience should not cross."
