Unweaving the Rainbow


Saturday, December 18, 2004

History is full of poets who have extolled the wonders of nature. And in his book Unweaving the Rainbow, the brilliant Oxford University biologist Richard Dawkins professes that he is equally amazed at the poetry of the natural world. His latest book on evolution is called The Ancestor's Tale, and is modeled after Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Kurt Andersen spoke with Richard Dawkins about the art of real life.
