Darwin among the non-scientists: some literary influence
Darwin's Origin of Species is arguably the most important work in the history of English literature, surpassing those of Dickens,
Wordsworth, and Eliot. The strength of the work lies not only in the superiority of its argument, but in the book's conceptual and stylistic artistry. This lecture will address Darwin's literary influences and the Origin's continued impact.
This lecture is one in an ongoing series. PLEASE NOTE: It will be held at 4PM, Room 224, Social Sciences Research Building, The University of Chicago, 1126 E. 59th St.
