Description: These challenging essays explore how ideas are transformed as they come under the stress of unforeseen readers. Using a wealth of material from diverse nineteenth- and twentieth-century writing, Beer tracks encounters between science, literature and other forms of emotional experience. Her analysis discloses issues of change, gender, nation, and desire. A substantial group of the essays centers on Darwin; other essays Look at Hardy, Helmholtz, Hopkins, Clerk Maxwell, and Woolf. The collection throws a different tight on Victorian experience and the rise of modernism and engages with current controversies about the place of science in culture.
