Much has been done tracking Darwinian influence on creation of male
characters in fiction (eg Dr.Jekyll-Mr. Hyde).  A graduate student of mine
wants to write thesis tracking Darwinian influence on creation of female
characters (cp. Claude Bernard > Zola > Nana).  Suggestions re primary
sources & criticism would be appreciated.
