6. Darwin the writer [2011]

Book
xvii, 244 p. : ill. ; 23 cm.
  • 1. Darwin, the Writer -- 2. Learning to See: Darwin's Prophetic Apprenticeship on the Beagle Voyage -- 3. The Prose of On the Origin of Species -- 4. Surprise and Paradox: Darwin's Artful Legacy -- 5. Darwinian Mind and Wildean Paradox -- 6. Hardy's Woodlanders and the Darwinian Grotesque -- 7. Coda: The Comic Darwin.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, arguably the most important book written in English in the nineteenth century, transformed the way we looked at the world. It is usually assumed that this is because the idea of evolution was so staggeringly powerful. Prize-winning author George Levine suggests that much of its influence was due, in fact, to its artistry; to the way it was written. Alive with metaphor, vivid descriptions, twists, hesitations, personal exclamations, and humour, the prose is imbued with the sorts of tensions, ambivalences, and feelings characteristic of great literature. Although it is certainly a work of "science, " the Origin is equally a work of "literature, " at home in the company of celebrated Victorian novels such as Middlemarch and Bleak House, books that give us a unique yet recognisable sense of what the world is really like, while not being literally 'true'. Darwin's enormous cultural success, Levine contends, depended as much on the construction of his argument and the nature of his language, as it did on the power of his ideas and his evidence. By challenging the dominant reading of his work, this impassioned and energetic book gives us a Darwin who is comic rather than tragic, ebullient rather than austere, and who takes delight in the wild and fluid entanglement of things.

The goal of this book is to make it easier for scientists, especially those new to scientific writing, to write about their results and to get their manuscripts accepted in peer-reviewed journals. The book covers each step throughout the submission process, from organizing and outlining the manuscript, presenting statistical data and results, to what happens during the in-house manuscript review process and what to do if an article is initially rejected. In addition to providing practical exercises on these topics, the book focuses on helping writers distil their research into concise take-home messages for readers, in order to convey information as clearly as possible to the target audience.

This concise guide to planning, writing, and presenting research in biology and behavioral ecology is intended for students at all levels. The guidelines apply equally to independent projects for introductory biology, directed-study projects and undergraduate senior theses, as well as to master's theses, doctoral dissertations, and research aimed at publication. The book discusses planning research, writing a research proposal (whether for a formal proposal for thesis research, or for a research proposal for a funding agency such as the National Science Foundation), writing a research report (such as a graduate thesis, or a manuscript for publication in a research journal), and presenting research at research seminars and scientific meetings. The final chapter covers writing an effective CV. An appendix gives some tips on how to write clearly. Throughout, the book is illuminated with personal examples from the authors' own experiences and there is a strong emphasis on problems associated with field studies.

The guidelines apply equally to independent projects for introductory biology, directed-study projects and undergraduate senior theses, as well as to master's theses, doctoral dissertations, and research aimed at publication. The book discusses planning research, writing a research proposal (whether for a formal proposal for thesis research, or for a research proposal for a funding agency such as the National Science Foundation), writing a research report (such as a graduate thesis, or a manuscript for publication in a research journal), and presenting research at research seminars and scientific meetings. The final chapter covers writing an effective CV. An appendix gives some tips on how to write clearly. Throughout, the book is illuminated with personal examples from the authors' own experiences and there is a strong emphasis on problems associated with field studies.
