However, Shakespeare's contrary notions continue to make it difficult for older adults to gain the respect they deserve. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slippered 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. Then, the whining schoolboy with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. 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 towards childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound.

Speech: “All the world’s a stage” by William Shakespeare

shakespeares seven ages of man

Why is Jaques so anxious to play the part of a fool? A dual process model of defense against conscious and death-related thoughts: An extension of terror theory. The seven deadly sins, the seven sacraments, the seven heavenly virtues, and so on. The first two lines are oft-quoted, and the poem has been frequently anthologized. The 'why' is plain as way to parish church: He that a fool doth very wisely hit Doth very foolishly, although he smart, Not to seem senseless of the bob: if not, The wise man's folly is anatomized Even by the squandering glances of the fool. The poet comprehends that the stage is set by the Ultimate Creator, and we are mere puppets out to act our roles out as directed by Him.

The next stage of life is that of schoolboy, who unwillingly attends school and lacks discipline. Can you see the schoolboy — and perhaps sympathize with him? The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slippered 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. Shakespeare couldn't have described the stages of a man's life in other words than these. There is an old poor man, Who after me hath many a weary step Limp'd in pure love: till he be first sufficed, 130 Oppress'd with two weak evils, age and hunger, I will not touch a bit.

Though he is endowed with a shining face and the vigour of youth, he moves likes a snail unawares of the blessings he is attributed with. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms. 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, 160 Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound.
