Pilgrim s Progress is about two delusional assholes wandering around being dicks to people so it s basically a takeoff of Don uixote But the dreaming narrator seems unconscious of the fact that the pilgrims are both jerks I suppose it s possible that they re not supposed to be jerks at all butno that can t be right They re such jerksIt starts with a guy named Christian abandoning his family to wander off in search of a magical city His wife and childrenbegan to cry after him to return but the man put his fingers in his ears and ran on crying Life Life Eternal life It s pretty funny in a mean kind of waySo he takes off and immediately falls into the Slough of Despond translation Marsh of Bummers and we immediately see that he s not only a dick see above but not very bright He flails away through the mud and as he s finally struggling out of it some other guy comes by like what s up and Christian is all as I was going thither I fell in here and the dude is like But why did you not look for the steps Christian s all There were steps Womp wompAnd then he runs across some virgins Come good Christian since we have been so loving to you to receive you in our house this night Woohoo virgins I guess it was pretty smart after all for him to run out on his familyHe picks up his very own Sancho Panza along the way a dude named Faithful people have funny names in this book and they recognize kindred dick spirits in each other they will have great fun being mean to everyone else they meet for the rest of the book Right away for example they run into a dude named Talkative and they re just pricks to him for basically no reason I guess Talkative s name is ironic or something because he actually does very little of the talking and whenever he does open his mouth they just bag on him mercilessly FaithfulSome cry out against sin even as the mother cries out against her child in her lap when she calleth it slut and naughty girl and then falls to hugging and kissing itThe proverb is true of you which is said of a whore to wit that she is a shame to all women so are you a shame to all professors Talkative Since you are readyto judge as rashly as you do I cannot help but conclude that you are some peevish or melancholy man not fit to be discourse with Talkative has done nothing to infer that he s a sinner Christian has heard rumors about him that s all and Faithful is like okay good enough And then they ditch himAnyway so then they pass through Vanity Fair which has all kinds of stuff for sale but they re like We buy the truth which doesn t really make any sense but fine save your money Unfortunately the merchants are pissed off about that so they torture and burn Faithful to death which you re like holy shit where did that come from It s pretty gross Luckily he s replaced by a guy named Hopeful who s exactly the same as Faithful in every way sowhatever If Christian s going to never mention Faithful again after watching him get tortured to death I guess I won t eitherSo they ditch another guy or two and sing some shitty songs their idea of a fun chat is to sing shitty songs and then Christian is all Oooh shortcut and of course they re captured by a giant and chained up in his dungeon for like a week and he s about to kill them when get this suddenly Christian is like oh shit I totally forgot I have a magic key with me that will open anything This is another ongoing theme Christian just forgetting shit It ll come up again later So they unlock their chains and amble off and Christian s like I know the way back and Hopeful is like you know what maybe I ll lead the way for a while homie Christian Who could have thought that this path should have led us out of the way Hopeful I was afraid on it at the very first and therefore gave you that gentle cautionThey should have named him Passive Aggressive They get lost again in no time and once again they re eventually like oh shit They also gave us a note of directions about the way for our sure finding thereof but therein we have also forgotten to read It s a miracle these two bumbling nincompoops ever make it anywhere at allAnd then there s another case of them ditching a perfectly nice guy His name is Ignorance of all things and he s like I m a holy pilgrim too but Christian is allWhy or by what art thou persuaded that thou hast left all for God and heaven Ignorance My heart tells me so Christian The wise man says He that trusts his own heart is a fool Prov 2826 Ignorance This is spoken of an evil heart but mine is a good oneI will never believe that my heart is thus bad Christian Therefore thou never hadst one good thought concerning thyself in thy life Ignorance That is your faith but not mine yet mine I doubt not is as good as yours though I have not in my head so many whimsies as you Look here s the thing it s not this dude s fault his parents named him Ignorance It was a dick move on their part and sure if it was me I might come up with a nickname like Igny or something but I feel like Christian and Hopeful are judging him by the name than by the perfectly innocuous things he says This is an ongoing theme people with bummer names getting shat on for it and it just seems hella uncoolAnyway Christian and Hopeful respond by wandering off while chanting at him Well Ignorance wilt thou yet foolish be To slight good counsel ten times given thee Actually chanting at him It s moments like this that led George Bernard Shaw to describe it as a consistent attack on morality and respectability without a word that one can remember against vice and crime Later on Ignorance will get to the gates of Heaven and it turns out that Christian and Hopeful are right he totally doesn t get in He is instead bound and thrown straight into Hell so that sucks for him and if you thought that this was going to be a book where Christian and Hopeful learn a valuable lesson at the end about not being dicks to absolutely everyone this ending isn t going to satisfy you any than Don uixote s didBecause it turns out that the God of John Bunyan actually is Christian s God This is the menacing Puritan God our American forefathers sailed to America shrieking about the one Sinners are in the Angry Hands of and I don t care for Him He is too much of a dick for me The book itself has its moments It s vividly written there are exciting parts it s not boring But it s nowhere near as good as its exact contemporary Paradise Lost which leads you to wonder about its enduring popularity Is it just possible that Christians are so fond of it because it s uite a bit simpler than Milton Because the fact is Christian is not very bright
