2nd Impression. [First Edition: Same Year] From the cover: “Among all the great figures of the Old Testament, none is more enigmatic than Samson. His appeal is simple and compulsive, his story dramatic — but what was his true character, his real significance? In his new novel Eric Linklater sees him as one of the great folk-heroes of the world — an antique Till Eulenspiegel, a God-haunted Robin Hood, whose legendary feats of strength, ribald humour, and fanatical nationalism saved the threatened independence of the Hebrew tribes from the insidious take-over bids of the prosperous and powerful Philistines.”
