Format: Paperback
Marvell's poetry is subtle, subtle. You could spend a couple of years just mastering this thin volume.

But his language is also archaic, and this edition, from the "Wordsworth Poetry Library," is of no help whatsoever. Marvell was a contemporary of Milton, so many of the terms he uses require GLOSSING. Hello, anybody?

Yet there's nothing to help you in this book. It's nothing more than the bare text of the poems without any footnotes, glossary, or anything. There is a four-page introduction, but so what?

In fact, your needs will be served better, comprehensively better, if you click on over to this page:

The Complete Poems (Penguin Classics)

and purchase that far superior product. It has everything this volume doesn't.
