About this Book

From Wikipedia: Tarzan of the Apes is a 1912 story by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the first in the Tarzan series. It was first serialized in the pulp magazine The All-Story beginning October 1912 before being released as a novel in June 1914.

The story follows the title character Tarzan’s adventures, from his childhood being raised by apes in the jungle to his eventual encounters with other humans and Western society. So popular was the character that Burroughs continued the series into the 1940s with two dozen sequels.

Scholars have noted several important themes in the novel: the impact of heredity on behavior; racial superiority; civilization, especially as Tarzan struggles with his identity as a human; sexuality; and escapism.

In April 2012, in advance of the novel’s centennial anniversary, the Library of America published a hardcover edition based on Burroughs’ original novel, with an introduction by Thomas Mallon.(ISBN 978-1-59853-164-0).
