 The text of "Andrew Marvell" by T.S. Eliot
The day-dreamy feeling of Morris is essentially a slight thing; Marvell takes a slight affair, the feeling of a girl for her pet, and gives it a connection with that inexhaustible and terrible nebula of emotion which surrounds all our exact and practical passions and mingles with them.
Marvell is no greater personality than William Morris, but he had something much more solid behind him: he had the vast and penetrating influence of Ben Jonson.
It is what makes Marvell a classic; or classic in a sense in which Gray and Collins are not; for the latter, with all their accredited purity, are comparatively poor in shades of feeling to contrast and unite.

 PARAGON REVIEW : ANDREW MARVELL
Andrew Marvell is one of Hull's most famous sons, but sadly archival sources for the study of this important poet and politician are rare.
Leishman's work on Marvell was strictly that of literary criticism, but one of the interesting things about Marvell is that he has brought literary critics and historians together in their search to find out something about him.
Personal correspondence for Marvell is very thin on the ground and a third of the meagre forty-five personal letters surviving and in print represent correspondence with Henry and Edward Thompson (a further eight letters are to William Popple, Marvell's nephew and business associate of the Thompsons).

 Andrew Marvell
Characters: Marvell's most famous personae are Damon, the hapless mower in love with Juliana and hostile to gardens, the sentimentally grieving "Nymph," and his mute but memorable "Coy Mistress." His own persona is more ambiguous, masked by its playful use of langauge and standard poetic conventions.
Most impressive, for this political climate, are Marvell's ability to praise Charles I's conduct in defeat and to caution against English patriotic fervor after the end of the Irish uprising.
Most of Marvell's lyric works were never published in his lifetime, when he was known as an author of political satire attacking religious intolerance and political corruption.
