Tarzan of the Apes

Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edited by Jason Haslam

Oxford World's Classics

  • Tarzan is a central figure in American popular culture, beginning life in the pages of a pulp-fiction magazine and in a book that inspired numerous film and media adaptations. This new edition of the original novel considers the reasons for its popularity against the backdrop of its period.
  • The Introduction situates the novel not only in the pulp fiction industry but against the backdrop of adventure stories, European exploration in Africa, the feral child and nature versus civilization.
  • Appendices include selections of letters from readers to the editor of The All-Story magazine where the novel first appeared, histories of feral children, African explorers and American advocates of self-reliance.
  • Up-to-date bibliography, chronology, and helpful notes.
