Sun 11:00AM Mad Scientists and Monsters: Darwins Effect on late 19th Century Gothic Horror Literature
Darwin is not so much the father of evolutionary theory as he is a Titan releasing a scientific Kraken on the Victorian world. A modern Prometheus changing how we view the world forever. New ways of thinking challenge old patterns and out of this ideological conflict is birthed a new mythology. Here is the origin of all our modern myths. Dragons become sauropods and werewolves become ape men. Magic is transformed into science and the world falls into a new age of epic adventure.
