Product Description

An intimate and moving interpretation of the life and work of Charles Darwin, by the acclaimed poet and direct descendent of the famous scientist.

In these extraordinary poems, using multiple viewpoints -- from Darwin himself, to his beloved wife Emma, and even, at one point, the orangutang at London Zoo -- Ruth Padel illuminates the development of Darwin's thought, the drama of the discovery of evolution, and the fluctuating emotions of Darwin the husband, the naturalist and the tender father, in a powerful tribute to her famous ancestor.
