Christian Allegory in the Seventeenth Century: A Comparison of George Herbert and John Bunyan
http://www.systers.com/rdimon/herbert.html
"The purpose of this paper is to study the characteristics of Christian allegory in seventeenth-century poetry and prose by examining selections from George Herbert and John Bunyan. In comparing the allegorical works of these two men, I will concentrate primarily on their characters as personified abstractions or as metonymic representations -- that is, the name of one thing for something associated with it -- by examining their uses of dialogue and the pilgrimage motif to create the images of their characters.
