The Epic of Gilgamesh: An English Verison with an Introduction

The Epic of Gilgamesh - Anonymous, N.K. Sandars The epic of Gilgamesh, the renowned king of Uruk in Mesopotamia, comes from an age which had been wholly forgotten, until in the last century archaeologists began uncovering the buried cities of the middle east. The epic celebrates the Sumerian king, Uru-inim-gina, as tragic hero. A masterpiece of Mesopotamian literature, it recounts the pursuit of fame and immortality by the semi-legendary king of Uruk. Based on at least five earlier Sumerian legends, the epic was amalgamated into a unified whole early in the second millennium B.C.http://parrishlantern.blogspot.com/2011/01/epic-of-gilgamesh.html
