Ah, we have a hint of who might be the couple in bed: John Clayton and Jane Porter; or could it be Adam and Eve? Let us do some etymological hermeneutics and structuralist mythology: Tarzan’s English name was John Clayton, the son of an English Lord, as per Edgar Rice Burroughs fictional novel “Tarzan of the Apes” (1914) where he describes the archetypal feral child raised by Apes. Tarzan etymologically means “white skin.” Jane is a feminine variant of John and means “the Lord is gracious” in Hebrew. Adam means “earth” in Hebrew. Eve means “mother of all life” in Hebrew. That phrase is mentioned six times in Scripture but it never means only human life; hence the mother of all life is the biosphere. What is the structure of the myth? The mother of all life (Eve/Jane) meets the earth (Adam/Tarzan) and procreate in bed following the injunction of the gracious Lord to multiply, and beget the “naked ape.” Thus the white race takes over Africa and brings the blessings of European civilization (the white man’s burden) to Africa in the 19th century: from these blessings all sorts of little dictators spring forth in the 20th century when the chickens come home to roost. Indeed Levi-Strauss had it on target: there is much more in myths (and cartoons) than meets the eyes.
