: There's an expression I heard years ago - "eyeless in Gaza". Does anyone know the meaning or root of it?
It is from John Milton's 'Samson Agonistes':
'Eyeless in Gaza at the mill with slaves'.
It is a reference to Samson's blindness.
It was brought back to prominence in the 20th Century by Aldous Huxley's novel.
