it was amazing

Marvell is so poised, so witty, so complete. He uses conceits, for sure, but with emotional control too, so the curious images never seem forced or unnatural. He has style: bounce, flow, energy, elan. All of this is driven by the force of feeling. He hits home.

Alan Yes, elan and wit. His father, too, was known for his humor and irony.
