Is all the figurative language to be stripped from the poem or just this
one episode?

I want to second Jim R’s suggestion to look back at Harold Skulsky’s series
of posts from a couple of years ago explaining the genre and function of
the passage in question and citing precedents in classical epic for
Milton’s use of this convention.
