    1. I had to read this story for a course on world literature. It was absolutely fascinating! It is comparable with Beowulf and the Odyssey. I would definitely recommend to people who love classic epics.


    2. The Epic of Gilgamesh is the worlds oldest epic recorded. Gilgamesh is part God and part man. He is so strong, so handsome, and so grand that he is frustrated with normal life. He uses his power for selfish gain. He mistreats his people. The Gods see this and they decide that he needs someone to balance him. They create Enkidu from the clay. He is the opposite of Gilgamesh.

    3. So for school, I read this. Now I have to read the Illiad. *Sighs loud enough for the earth to collapse.*I read The Epic of Gilgamesh. It’s for school. Not even going to comment on this because everyone reads this for school.Death.Friendship.Oh noooo.Why you die!Some lady seduced me and I became a grown man.Gods and Goddesses aren’t good friends.The font is too small.I have to read The Iliad. I’m already hating this class.


    4. An epic tale, beautifully written! Would not have read except for it being a part of a World Lit class I'm taking for fun; so glad it was assigned. Written in the form of a poem, it is from Mesopotamia, and is considered to be one of the earliest surviving works of literature. Definitely recommended!


    5. This story is way more interesting than I thought it would be going into it. An epic tail of heroes and battles. The language in this translation is hard to follow, but it is the closest to the original as you can get in English.



    6. New-to-me translation. Does a solid job of representing the materiality and variations among various ancient tablets, including missing portions, Akkadian additions, and so forth.
