This edition of 'The Pilgrim's Progress', with original illustrations, is a founding text in the development of the English novel. Its vivid telling, psychological realism and the simplicity of the prose makes the story of Christian and his journey through the Slough of Despond to the Celestial City of universal appeal.
'As I walk'd through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place, where was a Denn; And I laid me down in that place to sleep: And as I slept I dreamed a Dream.' So begins one of the best-loved and most widely read books in English literature.
This new edition does full justice to the text for modern readers. The notes are helpful and scholarly. The introduction is warm and up to date. This is now the best reading edition available. Roger Pooley, Keele University
