Summary
This book is a biography of Bunyan. But there would be no excuse for re-telling the story of Bunyan's life unless one were considering it from a new angle, with a new focus. The new focus is here provided by the attempt to relate Bunyan's work in particular, and the protestant movement in general, to the social forces from which they sprang. At the same time I have tried to analyze the myth-making faculty in Bunyan and to show how his allegories take their place in the world of symbolism and myth. - Foreword
