Andrew Marvell, Orphan of the Hurricane

Derek Hirst and Steven N. Zwicker

  • A new model of interdisciplinary study
  • Explores how the narratives suggested in Marvell's writings can be used to reconstruct and reintegrate the ways in which he imagined himself
  • Demonstrates how sensitive literary analysis and scrupulous archival study can reinforce and enrich one another
  • A wholly innovative reading of Marvell's most dramatic and least understood lyric, 'The unfortunate Lover'
  • Suggests unexpected ways in which political crisis can precipitate art
