About this Recording

BUNYAN, J.: Pilgrim's Progress (The) (Abridged)

This great religious allegory, dating from the late 1670s, is presented as a dream in which Christian undertakes a journey through the Slough of Despond to the Celestial City. In Part II, he is followed by his wife Christina and their children. This allegory of a man in search of truth has proved popular throughout the world since its first publication.
