Everyman in literature refers to any ordinary individual whom the audience or the reader can identify with, and who is often placed in extraordinary circumstances. In Roth’s 27th novel, everyman points to an unnamed protagonist, a sickly boy who grows up obsessed with his and everybody else's health. He eventually dies in his 70’s like he said he would. Everyman begins with the hero's interment. Only three of the graveside mourners speak — the dead man's daughter, his second wife and older brother. What follows is a summary retrospective of the unnamed hero’s life. – Charmaine Z. Chanco
