Character Role Analysis

The Chorus

Even though the Chorus is technically not just one character, the Chorus speaks with one voice, so it's normal to lump them all together. And with this one voice, the Chorus is the only figure who remains with Samson through the entire narrative and who seem genuinely interested in just being with Samson instead of trying to free him, antagonize him, or teach him a lesson. We'd call that real companionship.
