Thus I embold'nd spake, and freedom us'd Permissive, and acceptance found, which gain'd [ ] This answer from the gratious voice Divine. Thus farr to try thee, Adam , I was pleas'd , And finde thee knowing not of Beasts alone, Which thou hast rightly nam'd , but of thy self, Expressing well the spirit within thee free, [ ] My Image, not imparted to the Brute, Whose fellowship therefore unmeet for thee Good reason was thou freely shouldst dislike, And be so minded still; I, ere thou spak'st , Knew it not good for Man to be alone , [ ] And no such companie as then thou saw'st Intended thee, for trial onely brought, To see how thou could'st judge of fit and meet: What next I bring shall please thee, be assur'd , Thy likeness, thy fit help, thy other self , [ ] Thy wish, exactly to thy hearts desire.
Hee ended , or I heard no more, for now My earthly by his Heav'nly overpowerd , Which it had long stood under, streind to the highth In that celestial Colloquie sublime, [ ] As with an object that excels the sense, Dazl'd and spent, sunk down, and sought repair Of sleep, which instantly fell on me, call'd By Nature as in aide , and clos'd mine eyes. Mine eyes he clos'd , but op'n left the Cell [ ] Of Fancie my internal sight, by which Abstract as in a transe methought I saw, Though sleeping, where I lay, and saw the shape Still glorious before whom awake I stood; Who stooping op'nd my left side, and took [ ] From thence a Rib , with cordial spirits warme , And Life-blood streaming fresh; wide was the wound , But suddenly with flesh fill'd up and heal'd : The Rib he formd and fashond with his hands; Under his forming hands a Creature grew , [ ] Manlike, but different sex, so lovly faire , That what seemd fair in all the World, seemd now Mean, or in her summ'd up, in her containd And in her looks, which from that time infus'd Sweetness into my heart, unfelt before, [ ] And into all things from her Aire inspir'd The spirit of love and amorous delight.
Shee disappeerd , and left me dark, I wak'd To find her, or for ever to deplore Her loss, and other pleasures all abjure: [ ] When out of hope , behold her, not farr off, Such as I saw her in my dream, adornd With what all Earth or Heaven could bestow To make her amiable: On she came, Led by her Heav'nly Maker, though unseen, [ ] And guided by his voice , nor uninformd Of nuptial Sanctitie and marriage Rites : Grace was in all her steps, Heav'n in her Eye, In every gesture dignitie and love.
I overjoyd could not forbear aloud. This turn hath made amends; thou hast fulfill'd Thy words, Creator bounteous and benigne , Giver of all things faire , but fairest this Of all thy gifts, nor enviest. She heard me thus, and though divinely brought, [ ] Yet Innocence and Virgin Modestie , Her vertue and the conscience of her worth, That would be woo'd , and not unsought be won, Not obvious , not obtrusive, but retir'd , The more desirable, or to say all, [ ] Nature her self, though pure of sinful thought, Wrought in her so, that seeing me, she turn'd ; I follow'd her, she what was Honour knew, And with obsequious Majestie approv'd My pleaded reason.

Or Nature faild in mee , and left some part Not proof enough such Object to sustain, [ ] Or from my side subducting, took perhaps More then enough; at least on her bestow'd Too much of Ornament , in outward shew Elaborate, of inward less exact. For well I understand in the prime end [ ] Of Nature her th' inferiour , in the mind And inward Faculties, which most excell , In outward also her resembling less His Image who made both, and less expressing The character of that Dominion giv'n [ ] O're other Creatures; yet when I approach Her loveliness, so absolute she seems And in her self compleat , so well to know Her own, that what she wills to do or say, Seems wisest, vertuousest , discreetest, best; [ ] All higher knowledge in her presence falls Degraded, Wisdom in discourse with her Looses discount'nanc't , and like folly shewes ; Authority and Reason on her waite , As one intended first, not after made [ ] Occasionally ; and to consummate all, Greatness of mind and nobleness thir seat Build in her loveliest , and create an awe About her, as a guard Angelic plac't.
To whom the Angel with contracted brow. Accuse not Nature, she hath don her part; Do thou but thine, and be not diffident Of Wisdom, she deserts thee not, if thou Dismiss not her, when most thou needst her nigh, By attributing overmuch to things [ ] Less excellent, as thou thy self perceav'st. For what admir'st thou, what transports thee so, An outside? But if the sense of touch whereby mankind Is propagated seem such dear delight [ ] Beyond all other, think the same voutsaf't To Cattel and each Beast; which would not be To them made common and divulg'd , if aught Therein enjoy'd were worthy to subdue The Soule of Man, or passion in him move.
To whom thus half abash't Adam repli'd. Yet these subject not; I to thee disclose What inward thence I feel, not therefore foild , Who meet with various objects, from the sense Variously representing; yet still free [ ] Approve the best, and follow what I approve. To Love thou blam'st me not, for love thou saist Leads up to Heav'n , is both the way and guide; Bear with me then, if lawful what I ask; Love not the heav'nly Spirits, and how thir Love [ ] Express they, by looks onely , or do they mix Irradiance, virtual or immediate touch?
To whom the Angel with a smile that glow'd Celestial rosie red, Loves proper hue, Answer'd. Let it suffice thee that thou know'st [ ] Us happie , and without Love no happiness.
Whatever pure thou in the body enjoy'st And pure thou wert created we enjoy In eminence, and obstacle find none Of membrane, joynt , or limb, exclusive barrs : [ ] Easier then Air with Air, if Spirits embrace, Total they mix, Union of Pure with Pure Desiring; nor restrain'd conveyance need As Flesh to mix with Flesh, or Soul with Soul. Be strong, live happie , and love, but first of all Him whom to love is to obey, and keep His great command; take heed lest Passion sway [ ] Thy Judgment to do aught, which else free Will Would not admit; thine and of all thy Sons The weal or woe in thee is plac't ; beware.
I in thy persevering shall rejoyce , And all the Blest : stand fast; to stand or fall [ ] Free in thine own Arbitrement it lies. Perfet within, no outward aid require; And all temptation to transgress repel. So saying, he arose; whom Adam thus Follow'd with benediction. Gentle to me and affable hath been Thy condescension, and shall be honour'd ever With grateful Memorie : thou to mankind [ ] Be good and friendly still, and oft return.
BOOK 8 THE ARGUMENT Adam inquires concerning celestial Motions, is doubtfully answer'd , and exhorted to search rather things more worthy of knowledg : Adam assents, and still desirous to detain Raphael , relates to him what he remember'd since his own Creation, his placing in Paradise, his talk with God concerning solitude and fit society, his first meeting and Nuptials with Eve , his discourse with the Angel thereupon; who after admonitions repeated departs.

Samson Agonistes. Creative Commons License. About the Editor. Here, round the shrines, vainly crouched Hecuba and her daughters, huddled together like doves swept before a black storm, and clasping the images of the gods. Where are you rushing to? The hour calls not for such aid or such defenders, not though my own Hector were here himself! Come hither, pray; this altar will guard us all, or you will die with us! Pyrrhus presses hotly upon him eager to strike, and at any moment will catch him and overwhelm him with the spear.
When at last he came before the eyes and faces of his parents, he fell, and poured out his life in a stream of blood. Now die! He lies, a huge trunk upon the shore, a head severed from the neck, a corpse without a name! I stood aghast, and there rose before me the form of my dear father, as I looked upon the king, of like age, gasping away his life under a cruel wound. I look back and scan the force about me. All, outworn, have deserted me and flung their bodies to the ground or dropped helpless into the flames.
Fire blazed up in my heart; there comes an angry desire to avenge my ruined country and exact a penalty for her sin. Is she to see husband and home, parents and children, attended by a train of Ilian ladies and Phrygian captives? For this is Priam to have perished by the sword?
Troy burnt in flames? The Dardan shore so often soaked in blood? Not so! For though there is no glorious renown in punishing a woman and such victory gains no honour, yet I shall win praise for blotting out villainy and exacting just recompense; and it will be a joy to have filled my soul with the flame of revenge and satisfied the ashes of my people.
Why this rage? Whither has your care for me fled? All these the Greek lines compass round on every side, and did not my love prevent it, by now the flames would have swept them away and the hostile sword would have drunk their blood. Know that it is not the hated face of the Laconian woman, daughter of Tyndareus, it is not Paris that is to blame; but the gods, the relentless gods, overturn this wealth and make Troy topple from her pinnacle. Behold — for all the cloud, which now, drawn over your sight, dulls your mortal vision and with dank pall enshrouds you, I will tear away; fear no commands of your mother nor refuse to obey her counsels — here, where you see shattered piles and rocks torn from rocks, and smoke eddying up mixed with dust, Neptune shakes the walls and foundations that his mighty trident has upheaved, and uproots all the city from her base.
Here Juno, fiercest of all, is foremost to hold the Scaean gates and, girt with steel, furiously calls from the ships her allied band. Now on the highest towers — turn and see — Tritonian Pallas is planted, gleaming with storm cloud and grim Gorgon. My father himself gives the Greeks courage and auspicious strength; he himself stirs up the gods against the Dardan arms. Hasten your flight, my son, and put an end to your toil. Dread shapes come to view and, hating Troy, great presences divine.
I descend and, guided by a god, make my way amid fire and foes. Weapons give me passage and the flames retire. Enough and more it is that I have seen one destruction, and have survived one capture of the city. To my body, thus lying, yea thus, bid farewell and depart!

Light is the loss of burial. Hated of heaven and useless, I have long stayed the years, ever since the father of gods and king of men breathed upon me with the winds of his bolt and touched me with his fire. He refuses, and abides in his purpose and his place. Again I rush to arms, and in utter misery long for death, for what device or what chance was offered now?

Arms, men, bring arms; the last light of life calls the vanquished. Give me back to the Greeks; let me seek again and renew the fight Never this day shall we all die unavenged! But if from past experience, you place some hope in the armour you have donned, guard first this house. To whom do you abandon little Iulus, your father, and men, once called your wife?
For between the hands and faces of his ad parents, from above the head of Iulus a light tongue of flame was seen to shed a gleam and, harmless in its touch, lick his soft locks and pasture round his temples. Trembling with alarm, we quickly shake out the blazing hair and quench with water the holy fires. At this, indeed, my father was overcome and, rising to his feet, salutes the gods, and worships the holy star. Gods of my fathers! Yours is this omen, and under your protection stands Troy.
See a Problem?
Yes, I yield, and refuse not, my son, to go in your company. However things may fall, we two will have on common peril, one salvation.
Let little Iulus come with me, and let my wife follow our steps at a distance. You servants, heed what I say.

As one leaves the city, there is a mound and ancient temple of forlorn Ceres, with an old cypress hard by, saved for many years by the reverence of our fathers. To this one spot we will come from different directions. Little Iulus clasps his hand in mine, and follows his father with steps that match not his. Behind comes my wife. We pass on amid the shadows; and I, whom of late no shower of missiles could move nor any Greeks thronging in opposing mass, now am affrighted by every breeze and startled by every sound, tremulous as I am and fearing alike for my companion and my burden.
I see their glowing shields and glittering brass. For while I plunge down byways and leave the course of the streets I know, alas! Did she halt? Did she stray from the path or sit down in exhaustion? I do not know. Here at last, when all were gathered, she alone was missing and had vanished from the company, her child, and her husband. What man or god did I see in the overthrown city?
Ascanius, my father Anchises, and the household gods of Troy I put in charge of my fellows and hid them in a winding vale. I myself seek again the city, and gird on my glittering arms. I am resolved to renew every risk, to retrace my way through all Troy and once more expose my life to every peril. Everywhere dread fills my heart; the very silence, too, dismays.
Then I turn homeward in case — in case she had made her way there! The Danai had rushed in and filled all the house. Forthwith the devouring fire rolls before the wind to the very roof; the flames tower above, the hot blast roars skyward. Here the treasures from all parts of Troy, torn from blazing shrines, tables of the gods, bowls of solid gold, and plundered raiment, are heaped up; boys and trembling matrons in long array stand round.
I was appalled, my hair stood up, and the voice choked in my throat. Sign in.
