London: Oxford University Press, 1922. Octavo. Item #028098
131 pages. Illustrated. Each writer gives a fresh interpretation of Andrew Marvell's poetry. Of particular interest is T.S. Eliot who analyzes To a Coy Mistress as a masterpiece of both wit and great imaginative power. While the youthful college student appreciates the sexual images of the lady's denial of sex, the literary masters see a remarkable poem that transcends the world of the fleshly mind. A fine copy bound in blue cloth, spine lettering gilt, in a very nice dust jacket with a couple of tiny chips to head and lower edge of front panel, a large chip to spine at lower joint.
