9781780937465: The Literary and Cultural Reception of Charles Darwin in Europe (The Reception of British and Irish Authors in Europe)

Beyond his pivotal place in the history of scientific thought, Charles Darwin's writings and his theory of evolution by natural selection have also had a profound impact on art and culture and continue to do so to this day. The Literary and Cultural Reception of Charles Darwin in Europe is a comprehensive survey of this enduring cultural impact throughout the continent.

With chapters written by leading international scholars that explore how literary writers and popular culture responded to Darwin's thought, the book also includes an extensive timeline of his cultural reception in Europe and bibliographies of major translations in each country.

Review:

“The tracking of intellectual legacies across vast geographical and temporal expanses was a striking feature of reception studies received this year.” –Jane Stabler, Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900

“A series of very thorough; well-written, well-researched essays are divided into major sections focusing on Germany and Northern Europe, Scandinavia, The Low Countries, Russia, Galicia, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Greece. Each essay examines not only Darwin's work, but also how it was adapted within the work of other authors. Extensive footnotes are included with each essay. Also included is an expansive timeline (1847-2009) recording the appearance of various translations, examinations, interpretations, and criticism of Darwin's work, as well as any commemorations and public events.” ―Martha Lawler, American Reference Books Annual
