Darwin and the Novelists: Patterns of Science in Victorian Fiction

by

Insisting on gradual and regular--lawful--change, Darwinian thought nevertheless requires acknowledgment of chance and randomness for a full explanation of biological phenomena. Levine shows how these conceptions affected 19th-century novelists--from Dickens and Trollope to Conrad--and draws contrasts with the pre-Darwinian novel.
