Beschreibung

"I realized that I had never fully understood Fitzroy or Lyell or Dr. Darwin or Emma ... especially Darwin himself. Janet Browne not only makes these historical figures real, three dimensional people, but she shows so elegantly how they affected and interacted with one another. This is not just another biography of Darwin, but a unique and important contribution; it will outlast all others. The scholarship is ... impeccable."--John Tyler Bonner, Princeton University

Pressestimmen

This book deserves the adjectives of praise traditionally used by reviewers to describe masterpieces... It is wonderful and marvelous, even magisterial. -- Stephen Jay Gould The New York Review of Books There is no better chronicle of Darwin as human being, friend, and indefatigable scientist, nor anywhere a richer description of his milieu, his family life, his social circle, and his scientific connections. Browne's extraordinary knowledge of the literature of the period makes her account particularly insightful... [A] masterpiece... Browne knows how to spellbind the reader... The definitive Darwin biography. -- Ernst Mayr Newsday A wonderful and well-rounded portrait... We watch Darwin grow from a careless and happy young boy to a driven and ambitious young man, and Browne is very good at letting us see the moments when Darwin began to sense the scope of his own powers... This Darwin is remarkably real. -- Jonathan Weiner The Washington Post Exciting and richly evocative. Kirkus Reviews No other biography has matched Browne's ability to capture so richly the details of Darwin's time and to convey them with such direct and engaging prose. Library Journal
