Overview

 

Charles Darwin's ideas transformed the biological sciences, but they also transformed how we think about ourselves and the world around us. 150 years after the publication of 'On the Origin of Species', John Holmes explores how the great poets of the Victorian age from Alfred Tennyson to Thomas Hardy responded to its greatest scientist, and how their poems can still speak to us today.
