He was also a member of parliament, tutor to a ward of Oliver Cromwells, a satirist and a friend and colleague of Miltons. Yet, apart from one or two anthology pieces like To his Coy Mistress, his final establishment as a major poet has waited on the twentieth century. It was T.S.

This edition re-examines the textual basis of the poetry and is based on a recent study of the extant manuscripts. Except in special cases, the spelling has been modernized while the punctuation remains as indicated in the original. Modern translations are provided for Marvells Greek and Latin poems.
