Dust-jacket illustration of Tarzan of the Apes first edition. A publication of Tarzan of the Apes originally from Tarzan has been called one of the best-known literary characters in the world. Numerous parodies and pirated works have also appeared. Burroughs considered other names for the character, including "Zantar" and "Tublat Zan," before he settled on "Tarzan. It's also worth noting that Burroughs use of dates and time passing is constantly inconsistent in his novels, in fact there are downright contradictions in the series. In the first book Tarzan Of The Apes it's implied that Tarzan was born early in and the arrival of Jane is said to have occurred in which would make him 20 years old. In Tarzan Of The Apes, chapter 9, Burroughs states: Thus, at eighteen, we find him, an English lordling, who could speak no English, and yet who could read and write his native language. Never had he seen a human being other than himself, for the little area traversed by his tribe was watered by no great river to bring down the savage natives of the interior. Two paragraphs later Mbonga's warriors enter. I was twenty before I saw a white man. Numerous authorised movies and novels have all agreed with the notion of Tarzan being 18 years old during the events of the first novel. A later novel Tarzan the Untamed faces a similar problem with the novel being set in the year , despite the fact that Tarzan and Jane's son, Jack 'Korak' Clayton is supposed to be 18 years old. It's believed among fans that Burroughs did this deliberately to give an illusion that Tarzan had once been an actual person and Burroughs was trying to conceal his real identity, in the first novel it is mentioned: I had this story from one who had no business to tell it to me, or to any other.

This has led to criticism in later years, with changing social views and customs, including charges of racism since the early s. In The Return of Tarzan, Arabs are "surly looking" and call Christians "dogs", while blacks are "lithe, ebon warriors, gesticulating and jabbering". One could make an equal argument that when it came to blacks that Burroughs was simply depicting unwholesome characters as unwholesome and the good ones in a better light as in Chapter 6 of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar where Burroughs writes of Mugambi, " A Swede has "a long yellow moustache, an unwholesome complexion, and filthy nails", and Russians cheat at cards.

The aristocracy except the House of Greystoke and royalty are invariably effete. For example, in Tarzan's Quest , while the depiction of Africans remains relatively primitive , they are portrayed more individualistically, with a greater variety of character traits positive and negative , while the main villains are white people. Burroughs never loses his distaste for European royalty, though.

However Thomas F.

Bertonneau writes about Burroughs' "conception of the feminine that elevates the woman to the same level as the man and that—in such characters as Dian of the Pellucidar novels or Dejah Thoris of the Barsoom novels—figures forth a female type who corresponds neither to desperate housewife, full-lipped prom-date, middle-level careerist office-manager, nor frowning ideological feminist-professor, but who exceeds all these by bounds in her realized humanity and in so doing suggests their insipidity.

His heroes do not engage in violence against women or in racially motivated violence. In Tarzan of the Apes, details of a background of suffering experienced at the hands of whites by Mbonga's "once great" people are repeatedly told with evident sympathy, and in explanation or even justification of their current animosity toward whites. Although the character of Tarzan does not directly engage in violence against women, feminist scholars have critiqued the presence of other sympathetic male characters who do with Tarzan's approval.

According to James Loewen 's Sundown Towns, this may be a vestige of Burroughs' having been from Oak Park, Illinois , a former Sundown town a town that forbids non-whites from living within it.

There she describes how various people of the time either challenged or upheld the idea that "civilization" is predicated on white masculinity. She closes with a chapter on 's Tarzan of the Apes because the story's protagonist is, according to her, the ultimate male by the standards of white America.

Bederman does note that Tarzan, "an instinctivily chivalrous Anglo-Saxon", does not engage in sexual violence, renouncing his "masculine impulse to rape. Bederman, in fact, reminds readers that when Tarzan first introduces himself to Jane, he does so as "Tarzan, the killer of beasts and many black men.

When he leaves the jungle and sees "civilized" Africans farming, his first instinct is to kill them just for being black. Tarzan's lynchings thus prove him the superior man. Wells , Bederman states that, in all probability, Burroughs was not trying to make any kind of statement or echo any of them. Tarzan is a white European male who grows up with apes.
