CMRS Roundtable

The critical opinion of Andrew Marvell’s “An Horatian Ode upon Cromwell’s Return from Ireland” has largely been that the lyric’s imagination of nationhood is ambiguous, unlike that in Milton’s Of Education. Of Education argues for a new style of education for national leaders that would improve on a “defect” of Sparta’s: Milton’s would be “equally good for both peace and war.” Using computational text analysis methods, Dr. Valerie Shepard (UCLA Graduate Student Resource Center and CMRS Associate) compares both works to show how Marvell’s lyric is less ambiguous about leadership than previously thought.
