The contributors identify and engage the major controversial issues surrounding this work - whether the godhead is present in or absent from Samson Agonistes- the appropriation and adaptation of biblical analogues, prosody and versification- the secret of Samsons strength- the interrelation of Miltons dramatic poem and Restoration drama- the bearing of mid-17th-century radicalism on the ethos of Samson Agonistes- and ways and means of misreading Miltons dramatic poem. Undoubtedly, this volume should be profoundly influential, frequently cited and often debated.
