Talk:R. Hengist Ryder
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
