This is one of those classics that should be on everyone's must read list.
how can i read the book؟؟
"grind up, kill, pulverize". over and over. reminds me of those bloody hittite reliefs at the BM, war, conquest, war, conquest. some good stuff tho:
"Friend, gods have given you a broad mind
and though it behoves you sensible, you keep uttering improper things.
Why, my Friend, does your mind utter improper things?" (Kovacs trans)
A very quick read. Shows many common archetypes in mythology and fiction.
I had to read this for a Humanities Western Texts class... I thought it was going to be a difficult read, but it was actually relatively easy. I enjoyed it. It is the oldest text in our history. They are still finding bits and pieces of the story.
That's one of a long list, Harvey. Anyway, here's a free copy: enjoy!
Did you like this book
What do you think the cover symbolizes?
on what katherine said, i personally think that the cover represents gilgamesh and enkidu...enkidu being penguin looking thing on the left and gilgamesh being the axe looking thing on the right. i think its a play off their personalities.
sticks and stones and the begging of ancient times. They look like rocks piled on top of eachother to me
What does the book cover mean?, Did you find yourself confused?
I think that it is Enkidu and Gilgamesh, they are both "stormy-hearted" and basically immortal. I think that the one that is taller is Gilgamesh because of elevated social status, and Enkidu is the more unfinished one, because of his "wild man" side.
I think that the cover of the book might symbolize the stone things that Gilgamesh broke while going to see Urshanabi.
I would really appreciate it if anyone can describe me the process of Enkidu's creation and education in brief tnx...
