The Complete Poems

Andrew Marvell was one of the most interesting and important poets of the seventeenth century.

He was also a member of parliament, tutor to a ward of Oliver Cromwell's, a satirist and a friend and colleague of Milton's. Yet, apart from one or two anthology pieces like 'To his Coy Mistress', his final establishment as a major poet has waited on the twentieth century. It was T.S. Eliot himself who finally insisted on Marvell's importance, and his essay of 1921 has set very largely the tone and context of modern criticisms.

Elizabeth Story Donno's edition was the first complete edition of Marvell's poetry to appear in paperback. This edition re-examines the textual basis of the poetry and is based on a recent study of the extant manuscripts. Except in special cases, the spelling has been modernized while the punctuation remains as indicated in the original. Modern translations are provided for Marvell's Greek and Latin poems.

Sobre o autor (1985)

Andrew Marvell was born on March 31, 1621 at Winestead-in-Holderness, Yorkshire. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1638. He acted as the tutor of the daughter of the Lord General of parliamentary forces and of Oliver Cromwell's ward. Marvell was also John Milton's assistant. Marvell's best known poem is "To His Coy Mistress." Under false names, he wrote numerous political and religious satires. Andrew Marvell died on August 16, 1678, the circumstances of his death questionable. Some claim that he died of an accidental medical overdose while others feel that he was poisoned by his enemies.
