Annotation

Allegory which gives the impression of being a standard religious allegory, but it is written from the point of view of an agnostic. The City of Superstition, which believers call the City of Faith while disputing with those who believe differently, is home to the religion of Fear. The other city visited is Vanity Fair. Ends in the Land of Beulah, a eutopia of rest just before death, although it was all a dream. See also 1879 and 1889-90 Spence.
