TWO QUESTIONS HERE:
ARE THEY FOREVER?
ARE THEY IN FASHION, IF NOT FASHIONABLE?
THERE IS NO BETTER OPENING TO A NOVEL THAN . . .


SADLY, SOME COMMUNITY COLLEGE STUDENTS
FOUND THE VOCABULARY TOO SOPHISTICATED,
YET THE NOVEL NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN
. . .  IF ERBíS OWN WORDS NOT ENOUGH,
THERE IS MORE


THE CLAIM FOR SUPERMAN IS THAT HE CONSTANTLY CHANGES TO MEET
THE NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS OF CONTEMPORANEOUS SOCIETY.
THAT MAY BE A CLAIM THAT HAS BEEN MISSED FOR TARZAN

I WONDER IF AUDIENCES RELATE AS CLOSELY
TO OTHER HEROES AS THEY DO TO TARZAN.
WHY ARE WE BURROUGHS FANS SO PROTECTIVE OF THE CHARACTER?

. . . . AND SO ON TO THE FASHIONS OVER THE TIMES OF TARZANíS EXISTENCE,
ESPECIALLY ON MOVIE AND TELEVISION SCREENS


MY APOLOGIES FOR THE INEPTITUDE OF DESCRIPTION
Ė ONLY JANE WAS 19, NOT HER PARTY

THE DESCRIPTIONS OF THE FILM TARZANS ARE TAKEN PRIMARILY
FROM ESSOE, WITH SOME FROM FURY; STILLS AND TEXT

. . . . THIS IS WHAT TARZAN AND JANE MIGHT HAVE LOOKED LIKE
WHILE TOOLING ABOUT THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE
Ė OR AROUND BALTIMORE OR THAT PLACE IN WISCONSIN


.





NOTICE HOW REVEALING JANEíS COSTUME IS, AS WAS TARZANíS,
ESPECIALLY IN COMPARISON WITH DAY WEAR AND BATHING SUITS OF THE TIME
