It took a long time for Marvell's fame as a poet to match, and then to eclipse, his celebrity as a politician and defender of civil liberties, but in the present century he has been regarded as perhaps the most important seventeenth-century poet after his friend John Milton. His poems were published postumously in 1681, and there is important additional material in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. The present edition, though drawing on the Oxford English Text edition of Margoliouth as revixed by Legouis, offers a new recension of the text and, since the poetry sometims calls for it, unobtrusive explanatory annotation. Marvell's powers as a prose satirist are represented by the first book of "The Rehearsal Transprosed".

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.About the Author:
