Marvell and Liberty: Edited by Warren Chernaik and Martin Dzelzainis

£85.00

Product description

Original binding with gilt titling to the spine, dust jacket as issued. (xiii), 365 pp and illustrated with a number of photographic plates. Minor damage to edge of front board, and apart from handling marks on front edge the pages are clean and tight, without inscriptions.

This collection of original essays by leading international scholars treats a major poet in an entirely new light. It is unique among publications on Marvell in giving equal attention to the full range of Marvell's writing, rather than concentrating on a very limited body of texts. A common factor linking all the essays in the volume is that they all concern themselves, in their varied ways, with the concept of liberty, a complex and controversial term in the seventeenth century. Marvell is a writer deeply implicated in the history of his time, and his works register, in ways which are still definitive, many of the turning-points of the Interregnum and Restoration, as well as being decisive interventions in their own right, which helped to shape events. As the essays in this volume show, Marvell's writings also exercised a potent influence after his death. Marvell and Liberty constitutes a major reassessment of a figure who lived much of his life close to the epicentre of the revolutionary upheavals of the seventeenth century.
