On This Day in History was published a book that changed many things, Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (John Murray, London).

It sold out immediately.

To celebrate it is this poem, entitled Darwin by the late Wisconsin poet, Lorine Niedecker. It includes these lines almost at the end: "The details/ to the working of chance."

And here is the book on-line.
