Digital resource (JSTOR)
The author points out a connection between the whale episode in the Physiologus and the leviathan in Milton's Paradise Lost. He also shows a similarity to the whale poem in the Old English Physiologus found in the Exeter Book and suggests that Milton may have been familiar with it.
