Andrew Marvel

(1621 – 1678)

Andrew Marvell was born at Winestead-in-Holderness, Yorkshire, on March 31, 1621 to the Rev. Andrew Marvell, and his wife Anne. He was educated at the Hull Grammar School, and in 1633 he matriculated as a Sizar of Trinity College, Cambridge. Two poems by Marvel, one in Greek, one in Latin, were printed in the Musa Cantabrigiensis in 1637. In 1638, Marvell was admitted a Scholar of Trinity College, and took his B.A. degree in the same. In 1650, Marvell became the tutor of twelve-year-old Mary Fairfax (later Duchess of Buckingham). The sojourn provided material for Marvell’s most profound poem, Upon Appleton House, a poem crucial to his development both as man and as poet. Here he exanlincs the competing claims of public service and the search for personal insight. To the same period probably belong Marvell’s To his Coy Mistress and The Definition of Love Marvell, who had been a supporter of the King, under the Commonwealth, became an adherent of Cromwell. In the summer of 1657, Marvell tutored Cromwell’s nephew and ward, William Dutton, living at Eton.

In the summer of 1657, Marvell tutored Cromwell’s nephew and ward, William Dutton, living at Eton. In September 1657, he was appointed assistant to John Milton, Latin Secretary for the Commonwealth. He was paid a salary of £200, the same as Milton, although his was not a life pension. During his last twenty years of life, Marvell was engaged in political activities, taking part in embassies to Holland and Russia and writing political pamphlets and satires. Marvell’s  Miscellaneous Poems were printed posthumously in 1681. In his quiet way he seems to have been helpful after the Restoration (1660) in saving Milton from an extended jail term and possible execution. Starting in 1659, Marvell was elected M. P. for his hometown of Hull, and he continued to represent it until his death. During his last twenty years of life, Marvell was engaged in political activities.

Marvell died on August 16, 1678 of tertian ague, and the mal-practice of the attending physician. He was buried in the church of St. Giles-in-the-Fields. The century, which followed Marvel’s death, remembered him almost exclusively as a politician and pamphleteer. Succeeding periods, on the other hand, have all but lost the public figure in the haunting recesses of his lyric poems.
