This is a simple word cloud of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan of the Apes:
tarzan little clayton great jungle before d’arnot jane back about cabin mr toward porter professor saw again time philander eyes strange know first here though never old turned many after black forest left hand own thought day knew beneath body head see young life long found most girl lay village face tribe wild away tree until ape down must seen far within door white few much esmeralda savage above once dead mighty ground stood side last trees apes cried thing among moment took hands new off without almost beast huge alone close just tut canler nor way knife small
I found this story to have quite a number of similarities with James Fenimore Cooper’s The Last of the Mohicans. The central character in both was super human. Both includes some sort of wilderness. In the Last of the Mohicans it was the forest. In Tarzan it was the jungle. In both cases the wilderness was inhabited by savages. Indians, apes, or pirates. Both included damsels in distress who were treated in a rather Victorian manner and were sought after by an unwanted lover. Both included characters with little common sense. David and Professor Porter.
I found Tarzan much more readable and story-like compared to the Last of the Mohicans. It can really be divided into two parts. The first half is a character development. Who is Tarzan, and how did he becomes who he is. The second half is a love story, more or less, where Tarzan pursues his love. I found it rather distasteful that Tarzan was a man of “breeding“. I don’t think people are to bred like animals.
