The Pilgrim's ProgressBook - 2002
A nearly flawless work of art, The Pilgrim's Progress is a masterpiece of religious allegory transformed into intense drama. Its style is an unsurpassed evocation of the power of plain English prose. The characters who appear on its pages are superbly individualized, indelibly alive, and as memorable as the landmarks on Christian's perilous journey toward salvation- the Slough of Despond and the Delectable Mountains, Doubting Castle and the House Beautiful, Vanity Fair and the Celestial City. The author's religious faith, pure and ever present, serves to imbue the immediacy of his narrative with added dimension; the result belongs to the highest realm of literature, a continuously compelling tale framed in an unwavering vision of eternity. As F. R. Leavis writes- " T here was only one Bunyan . . . The Pilgrim's Progress stands alone . . . the work of a great creative writer."
