Identify one theme that is present in both Italo Calvino’s The Dinosaurs and the first chapter of Richard Dawkin’s The Selfish Gene. Discuss how you think the theme is represented in each work, citing at least one example.
[Remember, a theme is a central topic of a text (or visual). A text can have multiple themes. For example, you can argue that one theme of Geena Rocero’s TedTalk is identity.]
