John Bunyan : Pilgrim's Progress

'Elizabeth Rignall, a London painter's daughter, was not permitted to read anything else on Sundays, so she treated Pilgrim's Progress as a horror comic. Irresistibly drawn to the lurid colour illustration of the horned Apollyon, "and stretched out full length on the sofa with the book open before me I would proceed, week after week, to frighten the life out of myself".'

Century: 1850-1899 / 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Elizabeth Rignall      Print: Book
