As one of the Canongate Myths I expected a retelling of an age old story along similar lines to the rest of the series I've read four or five of them now and they've all been different some great some mediocre none bad and Grossman's take on Samson is no exception to thisWhat Grossman has not done however is provide a retelling of the myth of Samson He has instead produced a work of literary criticism Only it's not a terribly good work of criticism if looked at from a critical perspective While Grossman plays with the myth of Samson and uses a careful selection of evidence in the form of other authors critics and close analyses of original Hebrew words he uses this evidence to support theories that have been extracted from the text with little or no evidence for them in the source material Therefore as a work of pure historicist criticism it would fall flatThat said this is not pure criticism What Grossman has done is blend elements of the original Biblical verse with his own theories crafted from a sense of the artistic and literary and then analysed these flights of fantasy What we're left with is an interesting hybrid that is readable interesting and tells a genuinely good story giving insight in to the story of Samson Read it and enjoy it but be warned it's not what you would expect from a Canongate Myth and as a student of literature some of the criticism may begin to grate

I really want to meet Grossman because his prose is heart breaking wonderfulGrossman looks at the story of Samson and gives the story a very close reading I doubt anyone who reads this book will look at the story of Samson the same way Additionally Grossman makes connections to current events though not in a heavy handed way Grossman's look at Samson presents a rather interesting idea of a man who is chosen by who may lack free will He also takes about dated readings of the story For instance back in the olden days scholar thought that Deliah moved away from Samson at a critical point in their physical exercise together and that's why he was wearied until deathWhile funny at points the book is moving It is a short and uick read If you have the read the Bible or are interested in religion or myth you should read this lovely little book
