Evolution and Literature Web Papers 4

This is the fourth, and final, 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. As the semester ends, students are making use of the biological, philosophical and literary stories of the course to create new, interesting, useful stories of their own.

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?
