CHARLES DARWIN

Literary Classics, Author Biography

Charles Robert Darwin (1809 – 1882)

classic book author charles darwin, evolutionCharles Darwin was an English naturalist who formed our understanding of evolution. He was born in Shropshire, England into a well off family. His mother died when Darwin was still a young boy, and he later took himself up as an apprentice doctor with his father to treat patients in his county of birth. His fascination for natural history began whilst studying medicine, and was later enhanced by his voyage on the Beagle, where he had the opportuntities to observe and investigate wildlife and fossils and investigate the theory of natural selection. The Beagle survey took five years, two-thirds of which was on land, and the other third at sea (where Charles Darwin suffered quite severe seasickness).

By the time the Beagle had returned, Darwin’s reputation had already preceded him amongst certain academic circles. .

In 1839, he married his cousin, Emma Wedgewood, and between them they had ten children, three of whom died young. Darwin himself was marred by ill health throughout most of his life (possibly from an insect bite in South America). At the age of 73 he died at Down House with his wife by his side.
