Panel A:  "Poetry in Burroughs' Universe"
Professor Stanley A. Galloway, Bridgewater College, VA,
author of The Teenage Tarzan.
Stanley A. Galloway
Stan Galloway teaches writing and literature at Bridgewater College in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He has published seven articles in the Burroughs Bulletin. His poetry has appeared online at vox poetica, Loch Raven Review, Indigo Rising Magazine, Eunoia Review, Contemporary World Literature, Connotation press, Caper Literary Journal, Boston Literary magazine, The Atrium, Assisi: Ann Online Journal of Arts and Letters, and Apollo's Lyre. In print, his poems have shown up in WestWard Quarterly, Midnight Zoo, Carapace, the Burroughs Bulletin, and the anthologies Love Be Write and Edgar rice Burroughs: The Second Century. His book of literary criticism, The Teenage Tarzan, came out in 2010.

Following the 1912 publication of his wildly successful Tarzan of the Apes, Edgar Rice Burroughs authored four best-selling sequels in quick succession. In 1916, he decided to go back and recount selected adventures from Tarzan's teenage years. The result was Jungle Tales of Tarzan, a dozen short stories bearing such titles as "Tarzan's "First Love" and "Tarzan Rescues the Moon" and which chronicle the events preceding the youthful hero's ascension to "King of the Jungle." The adolescent phase of the character is the primary focus of Stan's detailed analysis in The Teenage Tarzan. The context, themes , motifs, and stylistic techniques of Jungle Tales of Tarzan are all fully explored, as well as the property's literary antecedents and its links ot the various comic book and film adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' most celebrated and enduring literary creation.
