In &&LB&&RJohn Bunyan&&L/B&&R''s seventeenth-century allegory of the soul''s search for salvation, each step along the way becomes a dramatic rendering of an inner state of the human psyche. As Christian journeys from "the wilderness of this world" to the glory of the Celestial City, he confronts a seemingly endless array of temptations, threats, and dangers, including the nearly irresistible allure of material splendor at Vanity Fair; the crushing psychological burden of depression and despair in the Slough of Despond; and the fear and uncertainty that eats away at faith in Doubting Castle. &&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RThis edition includes both the first and second parts of &&LI&&RThe Pilgrim''s Progress&&L/I&&R, which collectively reflect the feverish intensity of Bunyan''s religious beliefs. What remains significant is Bunyan''s ability to transform this intensity into an allegory that speaks to people of all faiths and all eras.&&LBR&&R&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RDavid Hawkes&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R is Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.
