A Definitive Biography of Lord Greystoke
(A book in the Tarzan 2 series)
A non fiction book by Philip José Farmer
The SUB-TITLE of this piece is: 'The Life of Lord Greystoke, 1888 - 1946'. Farmer spent four years searching British peerage records to determine the identity of the real LIFE person who E.R. Burroughs based his Tarzan character on. He begins with 24 Burroughs titles and analyses all the gaps, and parallel, true events of history to come up with a biographical sketch of 'Lord Greystoke'. Farmer points out where E.R.B. took liberties with language and time sequences to CREATE an exciting world of fiction. He points out similarities between E.R.B.'s take on events, and those events as seen by A.C. Doyle. Call it literary detective work!
