Über diesen Titel


"Ruth Padel's remarkable memoir of her great-great-grandfather is a sequence of exquisite, precise and moving poems that cover his science, travels, marriage and family life. Once I started reading I could not put it down until I had reached the end, and then I turned back for the pleasure of reading again." (Claire Tomalin)

"A fascinating, very rich book. It excitingly combines several large tasks and shows that Darwin's science sprang from the same aesthetic impulse as poetry. With sympathy and grace, Padel moves deftly between between science, love and family; between the vast processes of evolution and a personal life." (Sean O'Brien)

"A very bold book, probably unique: a life in verse, even painting parallel lives that influenced Darwin's like that of Alfred Russel Wallace. We all have our own Darwin, but poetry gets under the skin of the subject in a way conventional biography cannot match." (Richard Fortey)

"Ruth Padel's control of cadence and poetic diction is daring and exciting; her rhythm brilliant and subtle; the play with stanza form and technical tricks stunning and deeply impressive. Her handling of details and quotations from Darwin's life, letters and books is a lesson to biographers and poets alike." (Colm Toibin)
