Voyage of the Beagle: Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries Visited during the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle Round the World
Charles Darwin (au); David Amigoni (in)
Darwin’s travels around the world as an independent naturalist on “H.M.S. Beagle” between 1831 and 1836 impressed upon him a sense of the natural world’s beauty and sublimity which language could barely capture. ‘Words’, he said, ‘were inadequate to convey to those who have not visited the inter-tropical regions, the sensation of delight which the mind experiences’. Yet in his travel journal which takes the reader from South America to the South Sea islands, Darwin’s descriptive powers are constantly challenged, but never overcome. “The Voyage” displays Darwin’s powerful, speculative mind at work, posing searching questions about the complex relation between the Earth’s structure, animal forms, anthropology and the origins of life itself.
