Authoritative text with a complete list of the textual variants of early editions of Marvell's work. Full headnotes explaining dating, publication details, historical context, sources and summaries. Extensive footnote annotations, detailing word definitions, sources, allusions, textual variants and context information. "Marvell - The Complete Works" is an anthology of the seventeenth century poet, Andrew Marvell. Marvell's poetry is renowned for its irony, subtlety and allusiveness and Nigel Smith shows how such literary qualities were developed and the various ways in which the complexity of meanings may be interpreted. This edition presents an authoritative text of Marvell's poetry together with the fullest account yet published of matters of dating, publication, historical context, sources and critical reception, contained in a headnote for each poem. This book is the first complete edition of Marvell's verse for thirty years, by far the most knowledgeable edition and an indispensable guide to the study of his verse. Professor Nigel Smith is Head of English at Princeton University and regularly writes and broadcasts about 17th century literature.

Andrew Marvell was born on March 31, 1621 at Winestead-in-Holderness, Yorkshire. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1638. He acted as the tutor of the daughter of the Lord General of parliamentary forces and of Oliver Cromwell's ward. Marvell was also John Milton's assistant. Marvell's best known poem is "To His Coy Mistress." Under false names, he wrote numerous political and religious satires. Andrew Marvell died on August 16, 1678, the circumstances of his death questionable. Some claim that he died of an accidental medical overdose while others feel that he was poisoned by his enemies.

NIGEL SMITH has been a journalist, busker, TV comedy producer and script writer, winning an award for his BBC 4 radio comedy, Vent, based on his own life-threatening brain illness. More importantly, he has been -- and still is -- an embarrassing Dad. Much like Natalia Buttface, his three children are continually mortified by his ill-advised trousers, comedic hats, low quality jokes, poorly chosen motor vehicles, unique sense of direction and unfortunate ukulele playing. Unlike his hero Ivor Bumole, he doesn't write Christmas cracker jokes for a living. Yet.
