An intelligent and sensitive reader of the life (Literary Review)
Ever since T.S. Eliot claimed in 1921 that Andrew Marvell and his poetry "spoke more clearly and unequivocally with the voice of his literary age than does Milton", this most elusive of 17th-century Metaphysical poets has been celebrated as one of the fi (Squaring the poet with the politician, Murray comes up with a strangely unattractive figure, an intellectual opportunist and political survivor, who shifted from Royalist to Republican camps in the wake of the Civil War, the execution of Charles I, and th)
Jerry Brotton, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW ('Timely and comprehensive...Murray brings a much needed and informed freshness of insight')
Andrew Marvell (1621-78) enjoys an unrivalled reputation based on the popularity of poems like TO HIS COY MISTRESS, yet his life has often seemed puzzling and enigmatic. In the first fully comprehensive biography of Marvell since the 1960s, the poet emerges for the first time as an important figure in the political as well as the poetic life of his time.
Marvell lived through one of the most turbulent periods in English history and, after the Civil War and the Commonwealth, he became a Member of Parliament at the Restoration, serving the town of Hull until his death nearly two decades later. These political events enter his poems, sometimes directly, as in the famous HORATIAN Ode on Oliver Cromwell, sometimes indirectly as in his deceptively formal pastoral and lyric verse. This biography attempts to present an integrated portrait of Marvell the poet and the politician and to show that for Marvell poetry and politics were not opposed activities.
