This chapter uses the early modern construct of patriarchy as a way to understand Marvell's idealizing but often troubled address to the dominant male figures of his life: Thomas Lord Fairfax, Oliver Cromwell, the Duke of Buckingham; and it speculates about his yearnings for shelter and attachment.

Keywords: patriarch; subversion; incompleteness; misogyny; fatherhood
