Excerpt from The Yale Literary Magazine, 1848, Vol. 13
Some of Bunyan's brethren were learned. A late biographer has an anecdote of one, who, when put on trial as a dissenter, escaped by pleading in Greek, and again, probably, when requested to employ some other language, in ... Hebrew. Some among the brethren were gifted in preaching. Many, doubtless, had various accomplishments of which Bunyan was devoid. But there was no imagination which could cope or sympathize with his. They marveled at him, as boys marvel at the feats of an adventurous comrade. To the intense vivid ness of that imagination must be attributed the lively interest which we feel in every step of the Pilgrim's Progress. That was a vision rather than a dream. The relator casts a. Strange spell about us when we enter his magic circle. We forget all outward things while the wonderful revelation is made to pass before us.
