Are there precise equivalents of Bulwer, Jung, Freud, and Burroughs in IB?

I would imagine yes, they do.BoArthur
I was eventually going to suggest that maybe Jung is somewhat more prominent, and Freud less so, than *here*. But I don't think that matters too much for what you're talking about. Zahir 19:47, 21 February 2006 (PST)
Haggard’s association with Sir Henry Bulwer is all the more impressive since either the date of Bulwer’s decease (1872) or Haggard's year of travel (1875) is wrong. I’m not a big Tarzan fan, so I’ll just note that Edgar Rice Burroughs (author, ex-pencil sharpener wholesaler) was born in Chicago in 1875. I have no proprietary urge toward IB's Freud or Jung (although I lean toward the latter)Theophilus88
Does Burroughs presuppose Kipling? Even Kipling suspected that Mowgli was an influence on the creation of Tarzan. - AndrewSmith
Kipling I can take or leave, but I'm sure he was right on that score. The names of people besides Ryder are placeholders.
  • Here* Kipling also influenced John Campbell, the granddaddy editor of American science fiction, and Heinlein and Poul Anderson. I have added Andrew Lang and Cecil Rhodes as occasional authors in the Quarterly. I am considering making Burroughs a NAL pencil magnate rather than an author.Theophilus88 22:51, 23 February 2006 (PST)
I should point out that I have changed the names to Claudius Rhodes, Anthony Lang, and Edmund Rice Buroughs (one r).Theophilus88
