I know there is considerable debate as to dating the composition of Samson Agonistes--but why?

Did Milton not leave any record of when he wrote it?  When the publisher joined it with Paradise Regained, wouldn't he have put some sort of notatio that this was an earlier work by Milton?  Didn't anyone in Milton's circle know when he wrote SA?

Thank-you.

Warmly,
Mike Selby
