American Classics: Evolutionary Perspectives

Book Overview
This book examines selected works in the American literary tradition from an evolutionary perspective. Individual essays address figures ranging from Benjamin Franklin to Billy Collins, targeting a variety of fitness-related issues-courtship, nepotism, competition, cooperation, status, and deception, for example-in the context of both physical and social environment.
