Tarzan in Paris

The Musee du Quai Branly in Paris, France is running an exhibit devoted to exploring the cultural impact of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Tarzan. According to the museum’s head, Tarzan is important because it molded and reinforced American and European images of Africa throughout the twentieth century. Tarzan was introduced to readers by Burroughs in 1912 in Tarzan of the Apes. Burroughs went on to write two dozen novels about Tarzan. The first film was made as early as 1918.
