Everyman - There is a nice summary of everyman in a googleanswer to the question, 'Why do war novels use the everyman device?' This answer was mainly derived from the wikipage on everyman. Basically everyman is a literary device which means that the story, and protagonist(s), speak to a common human experience to which everyone can identify. The author is usually trying to demonstrate something about humanity or explore a moral through this device. At times the 'everyman' is in situations every one of us could find themselves (eg Winston Smith in 1984), and sometimes they are in extraordinary circumstances but they are the representation of the average person and how they would react in that situation (eg Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).
