Andrew Marvell was born in 1621 and lived through the English Civil War, and the restoration of the monarchy. He was politically active in Parliament and international diplomacy to varying degrees during his lifetime, but is best known for his verse. Marvell's poetry has been more appreciated since his death in 1677, with increased favourable comparisons with contemporaries such as Doone. The political upheavals that Marvell lived through undoubtedly shaped his work and the subtleties of his literature are explored in this critique in reference to his conjectured and documented political activity at the time of writing. Analysis of Marvell's prose is explored to 'illuminate the development of the English language during one of its most crucial periods'. In this book, originally published in 1940, Marvell's literature is analysed in a chronological order by Bradbook and Lloyd Thomas, giving a comprehensive biography of this influential writer and his work.
