Abstract:

"Spanning 600 years from the time of Chaucer to the present day, Literature and Science explains the complex interplay between science and literature over six centuries and is packed with information about the history of science fiction and science fact."

"From the writings of Chaucer to the phenomenal appeal of modern TV shows like The X-Files and Star Trek, scientific endeavor has had a profound impact on Anglo-American literature and culture. From the pioneering feminist ideas of Mary Shelley, creator of Frankenstein, to Robert A. Heinlein's Revolt in 2100, which predicted an America in which scientific research is suffocated by a ruling clique of ultraconservative Christians, the literature of the English language has long reflected scientists' wider societal concerns. This volume adopts a chronological framework to chart the evolving nature of such concerns, probing the creative tension at the heart of the relationship between science and literature."--Jacket.
