Summary
Through analysis of memoirs, diaries, letters, and natural histories by Victorian authors, this author explores how "evolutionary theories shaped nineteenth-century autobiographical practices and refashioned the human subject" and "how the lived experience of the individual theorist simultaneously impacted their biological formulations."
