I find the book description by Amazon (below) very informative and accurate and can only add, that for me, personally, it is a very good read in its ambition to combine Darwin's plots with literary narratives from the same period. The Author has been very creative in his investigations and it is a joy to follow his thoughts. This new edition contains one new chapter in addition to the earlier editions. The concluding chapter 9: "Darwin and the consciousness of others". It also contains an updated select bibliography, further reading related to Darwin and a useful index.
