The Messenger's opening speech is interesting for several reasons: it, right at the start of the play, announces that the play has a moral purpose, and foregrounds the play's dual concerns with our lives as well as our deaths (our "ending"). Moreover, the play's emphasis on transitoriness is expressly stated in the very first speech,
"That of our lives and ending shows
How transitory we be all day."
