Andrew Marvell: The Chameleon by Nigel Smith

The seventeenth-century poet Andrew Marvell (16211678) is one of the most intriguing figures in English literature. A noted civil servant under Cromwells Protectorate, he has been variously identified as a patriot, spy, conspirator, concealed homosexual, father to the liberal tradition, and incendiary satirical pamphleteer and freethinker. But while Marvells poetry and prose has attracted a wide modern following, his prose is known only to specialists, and much of his personal life remains shrouded in mystery. Nigel Smiths pivotal biography provides an unparalleled look into Marvells life, from his early employment as a tutor and gentlemans companion to his suspicious death, reputedly a politically fueled poisoning. Drawing on exhaustive archival research, the voluminous corpus of Marvells previously little known writing, and recent scholarship across several disciplines, Smiths portrait becomes the definitive account of this elusive life. nbsp
