The Pilgrim's Regress : An Allegorical Apology for Christianity, Reason and Romanticism
The Pilgrim's Regress An Allegorical Apology for Christianity Reason and Romanticism Author:C. S. Lewis Though the dragons and giants of this fable are different from those of Bunyan, the allegory performs its old function of enabling the author to say with brevity and simplicity what would otherwise have demanded a full-length philosophy of religion. The straight road which guides the pilgrims past the City of Claptrap, between the tableland of t... more »he High Anglicans and the far-off marsh of the Theosophists, is traditional Christianity; but the motives for walking that road are shown as they exist in certain neglected facts of the romantic imagination. From what he deems the false simplicities of modern thought, the author recalls us to the complex relations of erotic with aesthetic relations, and of both with religion; but the conclusion thence drawn is neither that of Freud nor of D. H. Lawrence. Many contemporary, and many perennial absurdities come by turn under the lash before the tale escapes, in its closing chapters, out of the realm of controversy.
