Chosen Companions Andrew Marvel!

on BBC Radio 4 FM

Margaret Lane chooses as her companion the 17th-century poet and satirist.
' When I was young I first fell in love with Marvell as the poet of solitude and gardens. He seemed to conjure up, as no one else has done, a sort of botanical paradise in which one could be always innocent and secure.'
GARY WATSON reads the selection of poems.
