Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A remarkably powerful picture of low English life in the days of a licentious king, The Life and Death of Mr. Badman is of historical as well as literary value and displays all the customary touches of Bunyan's genius. The Life and Death of Mr. Badman was published by John Bunyan in 1680, two years after the The Pilgrim's Progress. He intended it to be a companion piece to the story of Pilgrim's journey to heaven, describing instead the progress of the wicked Mr. Badman through the world to his death and damnation. Set out as a dialogue between two earnest gentlemen--Mr. Attentive and Mr. Wiseman--Bunyan's work is a colourful and dramatic discourse on the various vices of a bad man's life.
Review Quote*

"A dandy version . . . [It] has the virtue of containing all of the marginal glosses from the original edition. It also sports a brief and engaging foreword by James Fenton."  -Times Literary Supplement

Biographical Note John Bunyan (1628–1688) was a writer and preacher. His works include Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, an autobiographical account of his conversion to Christianity, and The Pilgrim's Progress, arguably the most famous Christian allegory.
