Explication of Marvell’s “Horatio Ode”

Compare these two violent passages from Andrew Marvell’s poem, “Horatian Ode.” Do so in a three-paragraph format: one paragraph on the first passage, one on the second, then a third comparing the two in light of one of the poem’s larger concerns. Though you may be interested in consulting the notes in the Longman Anthology for the basic historical context of this poem, please do not attempt to mount an argument about history. Stick to explaining how the poem works. Make sure, of course, to read and re-read the poem so that you understand the gist of it as you begin to write about it.
