"Eyeless in Gaza" is a novel by Aldous Huxley, first published in 1936. The title originates from a phrase in John Milton's "Samson Agonistes":: ... Promise was that I:Should Israel from Philistian yoke deliver;:Ask for this great deliverer now, and find him:Eyeless in Gaza at the mill with slaves ...

The chapters of the book are not ordered chronologically. Aldous Huxley biographer Sybille Bedford claims in her fictive memoir "Jigsaw" that the novel's characters Mary Amberley, a drug addict, and her daughter, were partly inspired by her own experiences with her morphine-addicted mother and herself, known to Huxley because they were neighbors in the south of France.
