This is a very shortened version designed for children, originally done in the 19th century but republished in 1939 with illustrations by Robert Lawson, the author/illustrator of Rabbit Hill, Smeller Wilson etc. which I enjoyed when young. I enjoyed his illustrations for this too, but always felt I should read the original. When I did, I decided that (at least as an adult), I really admired the dialogue more than the symbolic adventures which this version emphasized. ( )

Didn't read all of it just parts ( the Nicholas / Smike parts mostly ) ( )

The book is composed of two stories. The story of the pilgrimage of Christian is followed by a story of his wife Christiana's pilgrimage with her children. The story has similarities to that of paradise lost. Bunyan's story is tedious and boring. I cannot recommend the book to anyone but the fanatic. ( )

First words
As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep; and, as I slept, I dreamed a dream.
(Introduction to the Penguin edition by Roger Sharrock) -- The Pilgrim's Progress is a book which in the three hundred years of its existence has crossed most of the barriers of race and culture that usually serve to limit the communicative power of a classic.
And all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side.
