Marvell, Andrew

Even if the literature of the puritan age was characterized by a general austerity, an increase of introspection and self-criticism, Andrew Marvell (1621-1678) conveys the idea of a physical love and his production is full of conceits (metaphors that make an amazing comparison between two dissimilar ideas). Moreover, metaphysical poetry often contains references to unusual fields, such as astrology or alchemy…and it always wants to surprise the reader!
The first part of Marvell's poem talks about what the protagonist and his mistress could do in an eternal space and time, while the second one is about death, because it makes a change in the body: a corpse becomes putrid and many worms undermine each modesty.
