Tarzan Arrives In Paris 泰山抵达巴黎

He had the instincts of an animal and the intellect of a man and now Tarzan, the world's first adult jungle hero, has swung into his own exhibition at a Paris museum.

The loinclothed, muscled ape man is celebrated amid all the Western stereotypical views of Africa of the early twentieth century.

His creator, the American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, had never visited Africa, and unwittingly placed Tarzan in a jungle which was populated by tigers and which stretched from the Belgian Congo to Rhodesia.

The exhibition also traces the impact of Darwinism and evolutionary theory in the Tarzan story.

But for anyone looking for lighter relief, there's also an opportunity to practise your Tarzan jungle yell.
