Jungle Tales of Tarzan

By Edgar Rice Burroughs

Jungle Tales of Tarzan is a collection of many captivating stories written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Plot Summary: Tarzan’s First Love, Tarzan’s courtship of the female ape Teeka ends in failure when her preference turns to their mutual friend, the male ape Taug. Tarzan wrestles with his humanness versus his ape-ness. The allusion to Helen of Troy enriches the story, making Tarzan and Taug’s fight over Teeka take on symbolic proportions. Stan Galloway writes: “when Burroughs chooses to name Helen as an objective correlative for Teeka, he expects both literal and emotional connections to occur.” Tarzan’s final claim of the story — “Tarzan is a man. He will go alone.” echoes the plight of Adam in the Garden of Eden. In the capture of Tarzan, he is taken captive by the warriors of a village of cannibals which has established a village near the territory of the ape tribe. He is saved from them by Tantor, the elephant. The Fight for the Balu. Teeka and Taug have a baby (balu, in the ape language), which Teeka names Gazan and will not allow Tarzan near. She changes her mind after Tarzan saves the baby from a leopard. In the God of Tarzan, Tarzan discovers the concept of “God” in the books preserved in the cabin of his dead parents, to which he pays regular visits. He inquires among members of his ape tribe for further elucidation without success, and continues his investigation among the cannibals of the nearby village and the natural phenomena of his world, such as the sun and moon. Eventually he concludes that God is none of these, but the creative force permeating everything.

The Return of Tarzan

By Edgar Rice Burroughs
