Evolution and Literature Web Papers 3

This is the third set of webpapers to emerge from The Story of Evolution and the Evolution of Stories, a course offered at Bryn Mawr College in Spring 2009. Three months into the semester, students are thinking about aspects of the evolution of literary stories that particularly interest--or are useful--to them.

Take a look around, and feel warmly welcome to respond in the comment area available at the end of each paper. What strikes, intrigues, puzzles you...what, among your reactions, might be of interest or use to the writer, or others in the class, or others who--exploring the internet--might be in search of a thoughtful conversation about evolution and literature?
