Darwin: A Life in Poems by Ruth Padel

Synopsis from Blackwells:

Includes poems that use multiple viewpoints – from Darwin himself, to his beloved wife Emma, and even, at one point, the orangutang at London Zoo – and illuminates the development of Darwin’s thought, the drama of the discovery of evolution, and the fluctuating emotions of Darwin the husband, and the naturalist and the tender father.
