James Krasner demonstrates how Charles Darwin's representational techniques transformed his opulently "entangled" nature into a formless, psychologically interior landscape. The abundance and variety of evolutionary nature required Darwin and the nature writers who followed him to portray nature as though seen through a physical eye. Using the visual perception theories of Berkeley, Hamilton, Brewster, Koffka, and James, Krasner investigates the ways in which Thomas Hardy, Joseph Conrad, and D.H. Lawrence, as well as other naturalists and nature writers, came to portray nature as the locus of optical illusion and visual failure. Narrative portrayals of nature become narrative portrayals of the perception of nature in which the physiological limitations of the human eye determine the structure of the representation.

Juxtaposing complex developments in visual perception theory to those in narrative vision throughout his study, Krasner shows that, by contrast, Darwin's perceptual practice was strictly empiricist in its exhibition of the constructive process involved in its own seeing. Darwin's empirically constructing forms out of fragments, furthermore, envisions a "prodigality of form" in nature; ironically, Darwin used limited "entangled" vision and "optical failure" to present an expansive nature.
