Excerpt from Evolution: A Fantasy
The author did more than this. To have stopped there would have been merely clever, merely the ex pression in poetic form of Darwin's Descent of Man, and his epic of Evolution far more than cleverness, it has the ring of genius.
The crowning glory of Evolution is, perhaps, the manner in which he interwove throughout his master piece of imagination a golden thread of romance that becomes more and more lustrous as the story unfolds. He linked inseparably physical life and spiritual life, the so-called vital and eternal sparks, as, into the web of the lives that evolve, he wove the woof of love and brought them down through the ages together as one.
For I loved you even then, he sings as he throws his soul back through the ages to the first vertebrates of the Paleozoic period. Ever together he pictures life by life, love by love, breath by breath.
