This chapter discusses the period when Parliament was returned to Westminster, as well as the suspension of its sessions by the King from 20 February to 23 April and then finally to 18 September. Around this time, “The Second Advice to a Painter,” which Andrew Marvell is ascribed to have at least partly written, emerged—the poem itself an outspoken and sensational verse satire. During this period, Marvell had a lot of time on his hands and so was able to observe Restoration England quite closely, and to witness how it had taken shape while he had been away. The chapter then speaks of the paintings and poems of Edmund Waller, and how they influenced Marvell's work, especially in the later satires and poems he would produce in response to the events that transpired around him.

Keywords:   Second Advice, sensational verse satire, Restoration England, Edmund Waller, Marvell, Parliament prorogued
