                              Into this wilde Abyss,
The Womb of nature and perhaps her Grave,
Of neither Sea, nor Shore, nor Air, nor Fire,
But all these in thir pregnant causes mixt
Confus'dly, and which thus must ever fight,
Unless th' Almighty Maker them ordain
His dark materials to create more Worlds,
Into this wilde Abyss the warie fiend
Stood on the brink of Hell and look'd a while,
Pondering his Voyage; for no narrow frith

He had to cross.
— Milton, Paradise Lost

I am an evolutionary biologist with interests in history, literature and philosophy. Darouet is taken from "d'Arouet:" François-Marie Arouet (1694-1778) adopted the nom de plume Voltaire following his imprisonment in the Bastille in 1717.[1]
