This chapter begins by situating Marvell at the edge of the social, observing and withholding. It explores the contradictory dynamic of Marvell's desire to conceal on the one hand and to expose and divulge on the other. The chapter also shows the way in which traces of voyeurism in his lyric poetry are compounded with his drive to expose political and sexual deformities in his Restoration satires.
