Deep Things out of Darkness

John G. T. Anderson

University of California Press

In which we examine the life of Charles Darwin from his birth in Shrewsbury, through his schooling at Edinburgh and Cambridge, the voyage of the Beagle, and the years leading up to and following his publication of the Origin of Species. Emphasis is placed on the teachers and authors who influenced Darwin’s thinking as he developed his theory, his circle of family and friends, and the landscapes that are reflected in his writing. Darwin and the Darwinian period are presented as the epitome of natural history.

Keywords:   Charles Darwin, H.M.S. Beagle, Charles Lyell, John Henslow, Robert Fitzroy, Josiah Wedgwood, Emma Wedgwood, Alfred Russell Wallace, Thomas Henry Huxley, Down House, Galapagos
