Jungle Tales of Tarzan is a collection of twelve loosely connected short stories composed by Edgar Rice Burroughs, comprising the sixth book in order of publication in his series about the title character Tarzan.  Chronologically the events recounted in it occur within Chapter 11 of the first Tarzan novel, Tarzan of the Apes, between Tarzan's avenging of his ape foster mother's death and his becoming leader of his ape tribe.  The stories ran monthly in Blue Book magazine, September 1916 through August 1917 before book publication in 1919.
Tarzan's First Love. Tarzan's courtship of the female ape Teeka concludes in failure when her preference turns to their mutual friend, the male ape Taug. Tarzan wrestles with his humanness versus his ape-ness. The allusion to Helen of Troy enriches the story, making Tarzan and Taug's fight over Teeka take on symbolic proportions. Stan Galloway writes: "when Burroughs chooses to name Helen as an objective correlative for Teeka, he expects both literal and emotional connections to occur."  Tarzan's final claim of the story -- "Tarzan is a man. He will go alone."—echoes the plight of Adam in the Garden of Eden.
