The Pilgrim's Regress

The Pilgrim's Regress

Wade Annotated Edition.
Lewis's original allegory enhanced with a wealth of annotations, including
notes written by Lewis himself
Modeled after John Bunyan's famous Pilgrim's Progress, C. S. Lewis's Pilgrim's
Regress represents a number of firsts for Lewis ù the first book he wrote after
his conversion to Christianity, his first book of fiction, and the first book
he published under his own name.
This splendid annotated edition, produced in collaboration with the Marion E.
Wade Center in Wheaton, Illinois, helps readers recover the richness of Lewis's
allegory. Often considered obscure and difficult to read, The Pilgrim's Regress
nonetheless remains a witty satire on cultural fads, a vivid account of
spiritual dangers, and an illuminating tale for generations of pilgrims old and
new.
Editor David C. Downing's critical introduction provides needed biographical
and cultural context for fully appreciating The Pilgrim's Regress. Downing
relies throughout both on his own expertise and on previously unpublished
sources from Lewis himself to identify allusions to other authors, translate
quotations, and explain humor hidden within Lewis's text. Among the hundreds of
annotations are references that draw parallels to Lewis's later works,
including Mere Christianity, Surprised by Joy, and the Chronicles of Narnia.
C. S. Lewis spoke of the 'needless obscurity' of this early fiction of " ideas. Later he added notes and an explanatory preface for the reader of
seventy years ago. Now David C. Downing has gone further and helped to make
Lewis's engaging and classic modern pilgrim's quest even more accessible for
today's reader. I've reread The Pilgrim's Regress more often than many of
Lewis's writings and am delighted at this new edition."
