The world's oldest extended story, the Epic of Gilgamesh tells the adventures of the king of the ancient city, Uruk. Born more divine than human, Gilgamesh must accept his fate: he will die. The gods send him a companion, Enkidu, and together two heroes undertake mighty deeds. Then Enkidu dies, and Gilgamesh abandons his royal duties and goes in search of eternal life. The Epic of Gilgamesh is, perhaps, the oldest written story on Earth. It comes to us from Ancient Sumeria, and was originally written on 12 clay tablets in cunieform script. It is about the adventures of the historical King of Uruk. The translator chose to eliminate Tablet XII for personal reasons, with support from many literary, archaeological, and linguistic experts because it appears to be more of a sequel to the first 11 tablets, containing a story about Enkidu volunteering to retrieve some objects. This translation is based on the "standard" Akkadian "edition", but is filled in with excerpts... More > from the Old Babylonian where necessary.."< Less
