During 1867 Darwin intensified lines of research that were to result in two important publications, Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex and Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. Darwin circulated a questionnaire on human expression and also started to ask correspondents about sexual differences in animals and birds. At the same time, he was working on the proof-sheets of Variation of animals and plants under domestication, and negotiating almost weekly with translators.

'The most recent volumes of Darwin's correspondence shed new light on the complex question of the origin's reception and Darwin's responses to his critics ... they allow us to see Darwin in his proper historical context ... The story ... is a more subtle complex and ultimately much more interesting one than those invented by the myth-makers ... The letters also tell us so much about Victorian attitudes and society, and serve as a useful reminder that neither Darwin's story nor that of the Origin finishes in 1859, demonstrating why the eventual publication of all Darwin's correspondence is going to be so useful.'
