Professor Colie brings together all previous and partial perspectives on Andrew Marvell, adds new ones harvested from her own deep learning and wide research, and transforms the whole into what Professor Joseph Summers of the University of Michigan has called "the best critical book on Marvell's poetry." Rich in details and knowledge of seventeenth-century English poetry, aesthetics, Renaissance and Baroque literature and art, and critical theory, "My Ecchoing Song" first examines Marvell's uses of theme and device in various lyrics. Later parts of the book concentrate on "Upon Appleton House" and "The Garden," which Professor Colie reads from the various focuses of political history, Marvell's knowledge and use of emblems and classical authors, contemporary theology, philosophy, and painting. Originally published in 1970. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions.
The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
