Writers in popular culture, such as Gore Vidal, often emphasize Tarzan's escapist appeal. Burroughs himself acknowledged the centrality of the theme of heredity in the novel, and its conflict with the environment. For this purpose I selected an infant child of a race strongly marked by hereditary characteristics of the finer and nobler sort, and at an age at which he could not have been influenced by association with creatures of his own kind I threw him into an environment as diametrically opposite that to which he had been born as I might well conceive".
When he refuses to eat the African, Burroughs portrays "hereditary instinct" as the reason. She claims that Tarzan represents white, male opposition to the "black rapist" stereotype which was prevalent in the Southern U. Catherine Jurca similarly analyzes Tarzan as opposed to tolerating the presence of people of other races and classes in favor of preserving his own culture.
The End of the Story
Tarzan's jungle upbringing and eventual exposure to Western civilization form another common theme in literary criticism of the novel. Berglund notes that Tarzan's ability to read and write sets him apart from the apes, the African villagers, and the lower-class sailors in the novel, and culminates in Tarzan recognizing himself as a human for the first time; moreover, he sees himself as a man who is superior to others unlike himself. Jeff Berglund argues that this realization exemplifies Burroughs' portrayal of whiteness and literacy as fundamental to civilization through implying that Tarzan's growth into a perfectly civilized person stems from his Western, white heritage and ability to read and write.
However, Mikko Tuhkanen claims that the apparently civilized qualities of Tarzan, such as his interest in reading, threaten his survival as a human in the jungle. For Tuhkanen, Tarzan represents the fluidity with which humans should define themselves.

He asserts, "[T]he human and the nonhuman become grotesquely indistinguishable" in the novel. Michelle Coughlan argues that Tarzan displays behavior which seems outside of the bounds of traditional manhood in her article "Absolutely Punk: Queer Economies of Desire in Tarzan of the Apes. Most of the stories that Burroughs wrote were stories that he told himself. Burroughs' novel has been the basis of several films. The first two were the silent films Tarzan of the Apes and The Romance of Tarzan , both starring Elmo Lincoln as Tarzan, based on the first and second parts of the novel, respectively.
The next and most famous adaptation was Tarzan the Ape Man , starring Johnny Weissmuller , who went on to star in 11 other Tarzan films. Lincoln was replaced by Weissmuller as actor ; similarly Clayton was replaced by Harry Holt the character in the films. A number of Burroughs' other Tarzan novels have also been adapted for the screen. Numerous Tarzan films have been made with no connection to his writings other than the character. The book has been adapted into comic form on a number of occasions, both in the original Tarzan comic strip and comic books. The strip itself began with Hal Foster 's adaptation of the story.
Notable adaptations into comic book form include those of Gold Key Comics in Tarzan no. Probably the most prestigious comic version, however, was illustrator and former Tarzan comic strip artist Burne Hogarth 's adaptation of the first half of the book into his showcase graphic novel Tarzan of the Apes.

Hogarth subsequently followed up with another graphic novel Jungle Tales of Tarzan , which adapted four stories from Burroughs' identically titled collection of Tarzan stories. Dynamite Entertainment adapted the story for the first six issues of Lord of the Jungle , albeit loosely; for example, the cannibal tribe was replaced by a village of literal apemen.
