The Picture of little TC in a Prospect of Flowers depicts several seemingly unrelated events which are drawn together by an underlying allegory In the beginning of the poem TC a beautiful young woman is found at the morning of her life in a bed of flowers Next TC is described conquering men with her chaste charms As the poem progresses Marvell brings himself in to the poem and hints towards its allegory let me in time compoundwhere I may see thy glories While the forth stanza deals with the reinstallation of paradise to the present world The poem concludes by warning about the right and wrong uses of nature In all the poem suggests an allegory of biblical proportions where TC may be compared to Adam having authority over the world and meditating over its significance Throughout the poem the reader is reminded of Gods promise to man which is revealed in biblical prophecy The first stanza presents TC lying in the grass naming flowers engaged in a simple meditation of Gods creation King 102 Her simplicity recalls Adam before the creation of Eve and the fall King 105 The assumption of Marvells allegory of the story of Adam and Eve is made apparent by Marvells obvious word selection begins implies the beginning and golden days recalls the days of paradise in the garden Marvell The word nymph also demands attention but for a different reason since nymph can mean a virgin or soul as well as a young girl or bride the scene is related to Marvells other poems on the theme of the Resolved Soul and Created Pleasure King 102 Also in the first stanza the flowers named by TC are similar to the animals of Genesis who were supposed to recognize Gods image in Adams beauty King 103 What colour best becomes them brings to mind the difference between the red rose of this world and the white rose of paradise
