TARZAN OF THE APES

TARZAN OF THE APES

Tarzan first came swinging through the jungle in the pages of a pulp-fiction magazine in 1912, and subsequently in the novel that went on to spawn numerous film and other adaptations. The infant Tarzan is orphaned after his parents are marooned and killed on the coast of West Africa. Adopted by an ape-mother, Tarzan grows up to become a model of physical strength and natural prowess, and eventually leader of his tribe. When he encounters a group of white Europeans, and rescues Jane Porter from a marauding ape, he finds love, and must choose between the values of civilization and the jungle. The Tarzan of popular imagination bears only limited resemblance to Edgar Rice Burroughs's creation, and the complex backdrop of colonial appropriation, literary heritage, and nostalgic yearning from which he emerged. This edition considers these contexts, as well as the enduring appeal of the King of the Apes.
