Description
Milton, an English poet and political writer, has a thorough knowledge of classical Greek and Latin authors and was greatly influenced by them. Through his poetry, Milton wanted to do for England "what the greatest and choicest wits of Athens, Rome, or modern Italy, and those Hebrews of old" did for their countries "with this over and above of being a Christian." He wrote Paradise Lost to "justify the ways of God to man." Samson Agonistes tells the Biblical story of Samson in the style of Greek tragic drama.
