To read Adrew Marvell´s poems is an extraordinary experience. They are very much a product of their times. However, they can also appear daringly modern, offering startling new perspectives transforming the way one can perceive the world. Marvell was influenced by new scientific developments, by the bewildering views revealed by the telescope and the microscope. In this seminar, we will encounter cows in the sky, sounds that can be seen, colours that can be heard and nuns who are up to no good. Reading Marvell´s poems, we will imagine walking around seventeenth-century country houses, think green thoughts and ponder topics such as revolution, love and death.
