When their infant son is adopted by fanged "great anthropoid apes," he becomes one of the most legendary figures in all of literature--Tarzan of the Apes. Within the society of speechless primates, Tarzan wields his natural influence and becomes king. Self-educated by virtue of his parents' library, Tarzan discovers true civilization when he rescues aristocratic Jane Porter from the perils of his jungle. Their famous romance, which pits Tarzan's lifetime of savagery against Jane's genteel nature, has captivated audiences for nearly a century.&&LBR&&R &&LBR&&RFirst published in 1914, &&LI&&RTarzan of the Apes&&L/I&&R is the first of several works by &&LSTRONG&&REdgar Rice Burroughs&&L/B&&R that delineate Tarzan's manifold and amazing feats.
