schema:reviewBody""This book, by the pre-eminent historian of Cromwellian England, offers a fresh approach to the political lives of the two great poets of the Puritan Revolution, John Milton and Andrew Marvell. Blair Worden shows how differently their writing reads when its involvement in epochal events is historically reconstructed. We trace the responses of the two men to the execution of King Charles I; to the experience, unique in English history, of republican government; to the failure of that experiment; and to the rule of Oliver Cromwell, whose ascent, at the expense of king and parliament alike, inspired ambivalent sentiment in Milton and Marvell. Both authors underwent intensely felt changes of allegiance between the regicide and the Restoration. First we follow Marvell's gradual and painful transition from royalism to Cromwellianism. Then we examine Milton's entry into politics under the Commonwealth and the revisions of his perspective that followed it. We watch his difficult and disillusioning relationships with the successive regimes of the Interregnum, and view his engagement, in immortal poetry, with the collapse of Puritan rule. Our third author is Marvell's and Milton's common literary partner, and their colleague in government service at Whitehall, the political thinker and pioneering journalist Marchamont Nedham, whose writing shares and illuminates the preoccupation of the two more famous writers with the debates and dilemmas of that volatile era."--Jacket."
