WEFOUNDBarsoom : john carter of Mars Trilogy


Barsoom is a fictional representation of the planet Mars created by American pulp fiction author Edgar Rice Burroughs . The first Barsoom tale was serialized as Under the Moons of Mars in 1912, and published as a novel as A Princess of Mars in 1917. Ten sequels followed over the next three decades, further extending his vision of Barsoom and adding other characters. The first five novels are in the public domain in U.S., and the entire series is free around the world on Project Gutenberg Australia , but the books are still under copyright in most of the rest of the world.

The Barsoom series, where John Carter in the late 19th century is mysteriously transported from Earth to a Mars suffering from dwindling resources, has been cited by many well known science fiction writers as having inspired and motivated them in their youth, as well as by key scientists involved in both space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life.

It’s a sublimely gorgeous rainy day here in Napa. I’m listening to the ancient, pattering rhythm of the rainsong and thinking about Mars. No, not the red dustball of our modern age, where tiny robots scour the dunes for microscopic life. I’m thinking of BARSOOM, the title the red planet bore a long, long time ago. I’m thinking of ancient cities crumbling across dead sea-bottoms, tusked green warriors standing ten feet tall, snake-haired plant-men, four-armed white apes, ten-legged lions, flashing swords, and blasting radium pistols. I’m thinking of Edgar Rice Burroughs and his most original creation John Carter of Mars .

I read most of the Barsoom books when I was a youngster, somehwere in the 10-13 range and thoroughly enjoyed them. The fantastic Michael Whelan cover art on those particular editions remain unrivalled for stunning paperback design. So why do I find myself dwelling on John Carter and his ancient, savage version of Mars today? Well, after staying in print for nearly 100 years, Barsoom is finally coming to celluloid. Disney and Pixar are currently in the midst of filming a live-action/CGI hybrid called, simply enough, JOHN CARTER OF MARS .

John Carter quotes definitely have a very familiar feel to them, but the narrative is richly imagined enough to stand on their own. The story is a science fiction tale based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars, a novel that was published a century ago and the movie follows American Civil War veteran John Carter who gets mysteriously transported to Mars where his earthly body possesses super-human strength and whilst rescuing a Martian princess he becomes part of the conflict between the various planetary nations.

Verdict: The movie isn’t without its faults, it’s messy and chaotic and the story isn’t easy to follow if you aren’t paying attention, but it’s also often visually spectacular providing a fun escapist adventure that hits the right note in the end.

[first lines]
Tars Tarkas: [voice over] Mars. So you name it and think that you know it. The red planet, no air, no life. But you do not know Mars, for its true name is Barsoom. And it is not airless, nor is it dead, but it is dying. The city of Zodanga saw to that.
