Format: Paperback
This book contains practically all of Marvell's poetry and has an interesting foreword but it has no notes which would be really useful! Also the books are too small to make notes in, my English class are using separate A4 sheets to annotate the poems, which seems a bit pointless. Good for somebody who just wants to enjoy rich, descriptive poetry, but not a great copy for students.

Format: Paperback
Put it this way: 'Wit and ambiguity are both central concepts in Marvell's poetry. Discuss' was the exam question this year on Andrew Marvell's poetry (A Level English Lit). Marvell's imagery is thorough and very decorative but can seem a bit silly sometimes. This edition comes with line numbers and a contents page, not many contextual notes though. But its cheap! And students love cheap books right? :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Collection in Flimsy Paperback 28 Oct. 2010
By Dylan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this collection for a class in which I wrote a paper discussing "Upon Appleton House" and a few of his other poems. Although this was cheap, the paperback is so thin it is more of a pamphlet, and you are probably better off just sourcing these poems from other anthologies, the internet, or even by making photocopies at the library. I can never find this in my bookshelf when I want to, and it is not comprehensive enough of a poetry collection to warrant purchasing it for academic use.
