Everyman: Morality Play

What is the author's perception of death and the treatment of death in Everyman?

Even though the author is unknown I need to know if you can discern his perception andhow would you rate his/her treatment of death.

That the play is about death is foregrounded when, early in the play, a personified Death appears at God's summons. Death's role is to bring people to judgment. Though the play doesn't particularly explore our emotional response to Death, it is important to note that Everyman's pilgrimage is to the grave - and that the whole play is a consideration of what man must do before death.
