Dickens V Darwin

It is impossible to end 2009 without some mention of Darwin. Not that Dawkins will leave Darwin at his Bicentenary – but Chuck Colson ends 2009 tying two major publications by date – both published in 1859, Darwin’s ‘Origins’ and Dickens’ ‘Tale of Two Cities’. Both authors have a major interest in Thomas Malthus, Darwin is influenced by Malthus, Dickens parodies Malthus. It’s about two opposing world views – Darwin V Dickens.
