His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Ham net and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: INTRODUCTION This model of the seven stages of life is an important conceptual tool formulated by WIILIAM SHAKESPEARE to clarify, and so help others to similarly understand, the spiritual implications of all the individual and collective expressions of human experience and knowledge. The following paragraphs will provide a general introduction to this unique model. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 1. Human life develops or evolves in seven stages. 2. The first three stages of human life are the stages of lower functional (physical, emotional, and mental) adaptation to the universal Life-Energy. 3. The fourth stage of human life is the stage of whole bodily surrender and adaptation to the universal Life via Love-Communion (the disposition of the heart or deep psyche of pure energy). 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The fifth stage of human life is the stage of mysticism, or evolutionary adaptation to the higher brain and mind. The sixth stage of human life is the stage of ego-death, or transcendence of mind, independent self, and primal fear. The seventh stage of human life is the stage of bodily Translation, or Transfiguration of the total body-mind and the atomic soul in the Infinite Radiance of the Living God . 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE SEVEN AGES All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players, They have their exits and 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. Then, the whining schoolboy 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. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 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. 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. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything . 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: SUMMARY The Seven Ages of Man’ is taken from William Shakespeare’s famous play, ‘As You Like It’ (Act-II, Scene-VII), describes the seven phases in a man’s life-from childhood to old age. The world is but a global stage and all men and women presented here are mere puppets in the hands of destiny. Just like the infrastructures of a stage, the world has its own entrances and exits. Every man in his full lifetime has many parts to play. His total number of acts in his lifetime is the seven ages. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE FIRST STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The first and foremost act of every human being is the stage of infancy, where he makes his presence felt by crying at the top of his voice and many a times vomiting any food or drink that is repulsive, at the nursing arms of his mother. This period normally last till four years of age. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE SECOND STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The second stage is the ‘whining’ schoolboy where he learns to utter a plaintive, high-pitched, protracted sound, as in pain, fear, supplication, or complaint. His shiny morning face and his satchel; a small bag, sometimes with a shoulder strap; he creeps like a snail and not willing to go to school. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE THIRD STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The third stage is his early youth, the peak of love and high romance. He sighs like a burning furnace and sings the sad ballads of romance; full of woe; affected with, characterized by, or indicating woe: woeful melodies; to impress his lover’s heart. The impression of her reply can be seen in her eyebrows. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE FOURTH STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The fourth stage is that of a soldier where life if full of obligations, commitments, compliances, oaths and vows. His beard is like a leopard or panther. He endlessly fights for his honor, a full presence of mind which is sudden and quick in quarrel and a heart to maintain a dignified reputation. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE FIFTH STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The fifth stage is the adult-hood where a man tries to live a fair and justified life. His belly becomes bigger than normal. He is conscious about his diet and consumes a good intake of ‘capon’; a cockerel castrated to improve the flesh for use as food. His eyes are severe with seriousness and his beard is leveled to a formal cut. He is to take a lot of correct decisions to keep up with the ever changing times. So this stage is the most powerful stage in life. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE SIXTH STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The sixth stage is the middle-age. Here is where he prepares himself for the next level in life i.e. old age. He learns to relax from the hustles of life. His strength begins to weaken and spends more time within the roof of his house. He looks like a buffoon and an old fool in his rugged old slippers. He hangs his spectacles on his nose for reading and all his youthful hose; a flexible tube for conveying a liquid, as water, to a desired point; saved for the world too wide. His shank begins to shrink with time; the part of the lower limb in humans between the knee and the ankle; leg. Even his voice begins to descend to a lower tone. In his free time, he smokes his pipe and whistles his matured melodies. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THE SEVENTH STAGE 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: The last stage is the old-age where he enters his second childhood. It is also the beginning of the end of his eventful history. It is also the stage of oblivion; the state of being completely forgotten or unknown; the state of forgetting or of being oblivious; official disregard or overlooking of offenses; He is without everything; without teeth, eyes and taste. 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: 2/9/2012PowerPoint Presentation: THANK YOU Made by- JYOTI RANJAN MAHAPATRA Class - IX-A 2/9/2012 You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
