B (deferredreward) | 1 comments Pilgrims Progress in Today's English & The Pilgrim's Progress in Modern English (Pure Gold Classic) & probably others that I didn't see (I noticed because I have the first) should be separated from the 305 editions of Pilgrim's Progress. These, and other modern versions have not merely had spelling and thees & thous updated, but the editors have also taken some license with the content. In this case, my rating of this Today's English version does not accurately portray my opinion of the original work.

What do you mean by "license with the content"? In general, we DO combine different translations.

You can always rate more than one edition of a book.
