Pilgrim's Progress (Part I 1678/Part II 1684) holds a unique place
in the history of English literature. No other seventeenth-century
work except the King James Bible, nothing from the pen of a writer
of Bunyan's social class in any period, and no other Christian work,
has enjoyed such an extensive readership. The pilgrim Christian, Mr
Worldly Wiseman, Giant Despair, Hopeful, and Ignorance are engaged
in a powerful drama set against a solidly realistic background of
town and country. Bunyan captures the speech of ordinary people as
accurately as he depicts their behaviour and appearance and as
firmly as he realizes their inner emotional and spiritual life. The
tale is related in language remarkable for its beauty and
simplicity, and is spiced with Bunyan's acute and satirical
perceptions of the vanity and hypocrisy of his own society.
