      "When Burroughs refers to the jungle, and it is one of the most frequently used nouns in the entire Tarzan series, he is imagining any tropical, densely forested area and does not draw any further technical or ecological distinctions. For Burroughs’s purposes the most important features of the jungle are connected to genre and the impetus for adventure they provide and, in this respect, the jungle can be encapsulated in four key descriptive adjectives: perilous, primitive, impenetrable, and unnavigable."
      "The binaries at the core of the series—the modern and the primitive, civilized and savage, urban and wild—are heightened and complemented by a landscape that is both oppositional in itself and can slowly reveal a series of starkly contrastive hidden societies within its impenetrable borders."
      "Tarzan’s ability to tell this tale, to navigate so unerringly, is initially founded upon his finely tuned senses of hearing, smell, and sight."
      "the jungle is a vertical landscape in which the vegetation and ancient trees reduce visibility and impede any attempts at navigating"
      The coast is "an intermediary space between the African jungle and the wider world, the coast provides intelligibility and transparency to those trapped within an obscure and mysterious landscape."
