Show Summary Details


The last chapter of this book follows Marvell out from lyric privacy into the various phases of his eventful public career. It tracks his service to the Lord Protector, to his parliamentary constituency, to his various patrons, and it relates the puzzling inconsistency of his political stances to his fluctuating affective alignments. The chapter provides political meaning for his famous preoccupation with the orphan and endangered child.

Keywords: becoming; vitrification; Whiggery; politics; parliament
