In his article “Evolution” (1888), Grant Allen starts off by asserting that evolution can be found everywhere in Victorian culture in 1888. Analyze the main steps in his argument about how evolution came to be so pervasive.
This exercise, like the previous two, involve a close reading of a primary source. However, in this case the primary source is much longer than a letter or a single paragraph. You will be expected to be as specific as possible in analyzing the steps in Allen’s argument. Do not merely repeat or summarize Allen’s words or points. You must analyze carefully, delving below the surface meaning of the words and sentences. You must avoid extensive quotation though you may refer to phrases or words from the article. Your analysis must be written in essay format with a central thesis and supporting arguments. So you will be presenting an argument about Allen’s argument.
Keep in mind that this argument will lay out your own unique perspective about the article, rather than a description of what Allen says.
Possible questions to ask yourself as you develop the line of argument in your analysis:
How does Allen use words, metaphors and symbols to frame evolution in a positive light?
Why and how does Allen discuss the history of evolution and the contributions of key evolutionists to the development of evolutionary theory?
How and why does Allen shift the scope or direction of evolutionary theory?
How does Allen use rhetorical strategies to persuade his readers that his argument about evolution is correct?
Criteria for Evaluation:
Level of your understanding of the article selected for analysis.
Ability to construct a clear, coherent argument from a specific point of view, to convey this argument to your reader, and to support it through analysis of the article.
