Meanwhile, like Bunyan and many other puritans, Cromwell had been passing through a trying period of mental and religious change and struggle, beginning with deep melancholy and religious doubt and depression, and ending with "seeing light" and with enthusiastic and convinced faith, which remained henceforth the chief characteristic and impulse in his career.
Bear me out in it, thou great democratic God! who didst not refuse to the swart convict, Bunyan, the pale, poetic pearl; Thou who didst clothe with doubly hammered leaves of finest gold, the stumped and paupered arm of old Cervantes; Thou who didst pick up Andrew Jackson from the pebbles; who didst hurl him upon a war-horse; who didst thunder him higher than a throne!
Why, then, would a Puritan like Bunyan write allegory at all?
Bunyan represented the London Labor Party Sports Association at the fifth biennial congress of the Lucerne Sports International held in Prague during October 1929.
The cathartic release of finally being able to write again also explains, in part, the tangible weight of Bunyan 's memories.
