Sobre l'autor

Edgar Rice Burroughs was born on September 1, 1875, in Chicago. His father, George Tyler was a distiller and a battery manufacturer. Early in life Burroughs attempted to support his family in a variety of occupations, including railroad policeman, business partner, and miner. None of these proved mostra'n més successful. However, Burroughs had always enjoyed reading adventure fiction and decided to try his hand at writing. His first attempt, written under the pseudonym Normal Bean, sold very quickly and Burroughs' career took off. Although critics and educators have not always been supportive of Burroughs' writing, the characters in his stories have entertained readers for many years. Tarzan was the most popular, earning Burroughs enough money to start his own publishing house and a motion picture company. Another character, John Carter, is the hero of Burroughs' Mars adventure series. The continuing popularity of these characters has led some critics to reconsider the value of Burroughs' writing and to acknowledge significant themes in his stories. Burroughs died on March 19, 1950. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Biografia breu
Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950) was an American speculative fiction writer, best known for his prolific output in the adventure, science fiction and fantasy genres. Among his most well-known creations include Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars (Barsoom series), and Carson Napier of Venus (Amtor series).

He is also known for the hollow Earth-themed Pellucidar series, beginning with At the Earth's Core (1914); and the lost world-themed Caspak trilogy, beginning with The Land that Time Forgot (1918).

Burroughs' California ranch is now the center of the Tarzana neighborhood in Los Angeles

You must hid all your science education in the closet before reading this one, most of the "prehistoric" details in this one were flat wrong even when this was written. In particular the idea of people hatching from eggs on one end of the island and then slowly migrating north as they "evolve" into higher forms of humanity is absurd. The adventure is classic Burroughs, a perfect hero, lots of he-man posturing and overcoming predators. The action is fun but cannot make up for so many obvious plot and setting holes.

Being the first three books in the Barsoom series, this is a fun classic adventure written back when fantasy and sci-fi shared rooms and got along extremely well. Highly recommended.

This surprisingly holds up real well to a hundred year old pulp adventure story.

While on a mission for the British government John Clayton Lord of Greystoke and his young wife are marooned on the west Africa coast. Lady Alice Clayton gives birth to a baby boy and lives for a year before passing away of an unspecified illness. John Clayton is killed soon after by a band of marauding apes. A she-ape by the name of Kala takes the young Lord Greystoke as a replacement for an infant she's recently lost.[return][return]The young Englishman is raised by the apes as one of their own and given the name Tarzan. Tarzan is at a loss in terms of size and stength when compared to his ape playmates, but he makes use of his intelligence and agility to survive and gain status in the group. [return][return]One day Tarzan discovers the cabin his father built and where he had lived with his parents. Unaware that the skeletons in the cabin are those of his parents, Tarzan explores and becomes interested in the books within the cabin. Somehow (rather dubiously) he teaches himself to both read and write English fluently with the help of the books in the cabin.[return][return]Tarzan becomes a hero to the apes by killing some of their enemies such as lions and gorillas, he also has the members of a local village of cannibal natives thinking he is a forest god. Eventually Tarzan becomes the leader of the tribe, after defeating the previous leader in single combat, he leaves the tribe following the death of Kala at the hands of the cannibal tribe.[return][return]Not long after this Tarzan sees some newcomers to the west African coast; treasure hunters. Amongst this group are the eccentric American scientist; Professor Archimedes Q. Porter, his associate and friend Samuel Philander, the British Lord (and coincidentally Tarzan's cousin) William Cecil Clayton, the negro maid Esmeralda and Professor Porter's beautiful and spirited daughter Jane.[return][return]Tarzan becomes entranced by the beautiful white woman and largely because of this he assists the party and eventually rescues Jane when she is abducted by one of the apes. Jane is with Tarzan, falling in love with him, when a French ship comes to the aid of the small group and one of their party is captured by the cannibals. After depositing Jane back on the beach Tarzan goes back into the jungle and rescues the French officer; Paul D'Arnot.[return][return]D'Arnot contracts a fever, which Tarzan nurses him through and upon discovering that the wild man can read and write English, but not speak it, teaches him French. By the time D'Arnot and Tarzan arrive back at the beach, their ship has sailed.[return][return]Determining that Tarzan wishes to learn to live as a man, mainly for the purpose of pursuing Jane and winning her love, D'Arnot takes the jungle raised man to a colonial outpost. Tarzan becomes civilized and goes to the United States to be with Jane. Unfortunately, believing that they could never be together, Jane has accepted a proposal of marriage from another. Tarzan and Jane coming together is the subject of a sequel.[return][return]Burrows' treatment of the black natives gives a lot to be desired (when looking back at it from our late 20th century eyes), but I found him to be less offensive than Defoe in "Robinson Crusoe". Crusoe considered Man Friday to have no redeeming features (he's black so he's sub human) even though without Friday, Crusoe would have died - being white and "civilised" gave him no skills to live in the real world. Burrows treats the African natives differently - ok, they're black, they live in the jungle, but they have a very evolved social structure, are efficient and awe-some warriors and can work their environment to their advantage.[return][return]Burrows also has an interesting (dare I say homo-erotic) way of describing Tarzan especially when he is in his element of travellng through the jungle or fighting. Unfortunately he tends to repeat this multiple times in later books so the novelty of his prose does soon wane.… (més)
