1579 words - 6 pages

Andrew MARVELL- connected to Cavaliers, but is not one of them.some authors regard him as one of the important poet of the 'metaphysical' school- was appointed Latin Secretary to the Council of State, place previously occupied by his friend Milton. Mourned Cromwell's death in 'Upon the death of his late Highness the Lord Protector'; was an MP; his influence secured Milton's release from prison; after the Restoration published his satirical verse 'The Last Instructions to a Painter' which cannot begin to compare to his best lyrical poetry.- To His Coy Mistress is a picturesque and strong presentation of the carpe diem theme. The Garden depicts a lovely garden felicity as symbol of the unfallen life in Eden.- be that as it may he is a master of secular and religious poetry equally.- his best poetry combines true metaphysical wit with perfect classical grace and poise to a greater extent than any other poet of the century- his best and most characteristic poems are those in which an adventurous wit is perfectly subdued to the quiet texture of his verse to produce a poetry at once contemplative and exciting , gravely formal and mysteriously suggestive.- in his best poetries in his character he combined the best of Cavalier wit and courtesy with the quiet gravity of a humane Puritan. But the combination was too individual and subtle to provide a pattern for future poetsCarpe diem theme in 'To His Coy Mistress'The second poem that this essay discusses is Andrew Marvell's " To His CoyMistress." The poem is narrated by a young man heated with passion who isspeaking to his mistress. In reading this poem I became convinced that thespeaker was Marvell himself because he wrote it with such emotion and grace. Thepoem begins,"Had we but world enough, and time,This coyness, lady, were no crime."The beginning of this poem instantly sets its reader off with a sense of urgency. The opening lines immediately draw you into a story of something that must happen right now with the idea that there is no time to waste.The following lines are mainly about how deep his love runs and the lengths towhich he would go for his lady. He speaks of how he would take the time it tookto build empires in order to praise every part of her body. Next, the speakeralarms his reader with that same sense of urgency felt in the first two lines.In lines 21 and 22, he says,"But at my back, I always hearTime's winged chariot hurrying near."I think Marvell delivers this second burst of urgency at this particular part of the poem in order to secure in our thoughts with his importance of time. Time is a part of our lives that we never have enough of: it constantly speeds us up or slows us down, yet most importantly, it is extremely relevant in all of our lives. The next several lines bring thereader to reality with the poem as Marvell introduces death for the first timein the poem:And your quaint honor turn to dust,And into ashes all my lust:The grave's a fine and private place,But none, I...
