For twelve years he was a prisoner in Bedford jail, doing what walls of the jail that he wrote The Pilgrim's Progress, the most perfect allegory ever produced. In this story, or " dream," Christian -no glittering knight, but a plain, every-day citizen -flees from the City of Destruction in quest of the Celestial City. He has many troubles ; he falls into the Slough of Despond ; he has to go by roaring lions ; he encounters Apollyon ; he passes through the Valley of Humiliation ; he is beaten and persecuted at Vanity Fair ; he wanders out of the way and falls into the hands of Giant Despair of Doubting Castle ; and he goes tremblingly through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. But his way is not all gloom. He finds friendly entertainment and counsel at the House of the Interpreter ; at the house built by the Lord of the Hill he rests " in a large upper chamber, whose window opened toward the sunrising, the name of the chamber was Peace ;" he is shown far away the beauties of the Delectable Mountains, which are in Emmanuel's Land ; the key of promise opens the way out of Doubting Castle.
