This chapter narrates the events after the disappearance of Clarendon. A feeling of betrayal resounded in the Cavaliers at Clarendon's disappearance. They were also equally outraged by the clientage of Buckingham, who consistently pressed for religious toleration. The Cavaliers were not afraid in their expression of their displeasure over Buckingham's preferred policies, and nearly anyone might have been appalled by the growing number of advisers that accompanied the King everywhere, slowing down business because they were believed to have difficulty at arriving at conclusions. Through all of this, Andrew Marvell was rather independently minded. The chapter thus explores the poems in which he voiced his concerns, such as the cycle of Painter poems, as well as the “The Second Advice” and the “Third Advice” that were both attributed to Sir John Denham—whose name merely functions as a disguise (or a decoy) and a joke.
