Samson Agonistes, by John Milton, is a ''tragedy'' written in blank verse. It almost follows the theme of defection of a woman and humiliation suffered by the hero that was touched in Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained. With biblical over-tones, the tragedy follows the Greek traditions of Chorus and agony of the hero. An enchanting work that reflects author's own agony of descent into darkness.
