Complete Poems | Andrew Marvell
7 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Member of Parliament, tutor to Oliver Cromwell's ward, satirist, and friend of John Milton, Andrew Marvell was one of the most significant poets of the seventeenth century. The Complete Poems demonstrates his unique skill and immense diversity, and includes lyrical love poetry, religious works, and biting satire. From the passionately erotic "To His Coy Mistress" to the astutely political Cromwellian poems and the profoundly spiritual "On a Drop of Dew," in which he considers the nature of the soul, these works are masterpieces of clarity and metaphysical imagery. This Penguin Classics edition includes authoritative texts of these poems, based on a detailed study of the extant mansucripts, and a new introduction by leading scholar Jonathan Bate. Also included are a chronology, further reading selections, appendices, notes, and indexes. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Above is Oliver Cromwell's House in Ely where I bought the bookmark when my sister and I visited my niece who lives in Ely. I didn't know Marvell had written a poem about Cromwell, but it makes it a suitable bookmark for this book.
