ABSTRACT
The article provides an overview of various literature about the life and works of Charles Darwin. Darwin is a perennial favorite subject not only for biography but also for fiction. Literary critics are beginning to attend to evolutionary biology, not only to examine the rhetoric, narrative, and literary influence of its seminal works such as the "Origin of Species."
