The story of Gilgamesh, an ancient epic poem written on clay tablets in a cuneiform alphabet, is as fascinating and moving as it is crucial to our ability to fathom the time and the place in which it was written. Gardner's version restores the poetry of the text and the lyricism that is lost in the earlier, almost scientific renderings. The principal theme of the poem is a familiar one: man's persistent and hopeless quest for immortality. It tells of the heroic exploits of an ancient ruler of the walled city of Uruk named Gilgamesh. Included in its story is an account of the Flood that predates the Biblical version by centuries. Gilgamesh and his companion, a wild man of the woods named Enkidu, fight monsters and demonic powers in search of honor and lasting fame. When Enkidu is put to death by the vengeful goddess Ishtar, Gilgamesh travels to the underworld to find an answer to his grief and confront the question of mortality.… (mere)

It was ok.

This ancient Mesopotamian poem (written between 2100-1200 BC) includes the story of the Flood, very similar to the OT version. The main character, Gilgamesh, seeks friendship, which he finds in a wild man, who later dies. Gilgamesh becomes aware of his own mortality and fears death. He goes on a quest to find answers to his questions.

There are many gaps in the poem, but it does not hinder the idea of the story. I stopped after the first version of the poem, but if you want more, there are analogues that follow. ( )

I've owned a copy of this work ever since high school, but had somehow never gotten around to reading the whole thing even though it's incredibly short and two of my favorite books (Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash and Julian Jaynes' The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind) make heavy use of it. I didn't find the story as compelling as the narratives in its obvious peers (the Iliad, the Old Testament, etc), but you'd be a philistine on a world-historical scale to write it off just because the characters seem a little underdeveloped, the action is disjointed, and entire paragraphs of dialogue get repeated verbatim within a page of each other. After all, these loosely connected fragments of some of the earliest surviving works of literature in human history offer a fascinating look into what early people thought was interesting (feats of valor, surviving the whims of the gods, conquering death, propitiating marauding demigods with prostitutes). My edition has some helpful translation notes from N.K. Sandars that add useful context to help clear up confusion due to the inclusion of both Sumerian and Akkadian source material. (Side note: Nicholas Ostler's Empires of the Word has an interesting section on the relationship between the Sumerian and Akkadian cultures and languages that might help add some background).

All in all, I wouldn't place this on the same level of enjoyment as the Odyssey, but it's still a good read. The simple knowledge that you're reading something nearly 5,000 years old should be enough to make you take a look. ( )

Clássico sumério com cerca de 5.000 anos coloca ao leitor dificuldades de interpretação dos vários episódios, os quais só podem ser esclarecidos por assiriólogos.
No entanto, é evidente a influência que os capítulos 3, 4 e 5 tiveram na escrita da Bíblia. Esses capítulos resumem de forma singular as angústias humans que levaram ao nascimento das religiões e as explicações apontadas foram seguidas por todas as religiões nascidas no Próximo Oriente. ( )

An interesting "translation" of the Babylonian texts of the most ancient legend of Gilgamesh. While the Sumerian text fragments date much older than the babylonian texts Ferry uses, a more complete picture emerges from these later texts. In this we see some detail of Enkidu, the wild man who adventured with Gilgamesh. I was particularly struck by the scene where Enkidu finds the naked woman, whose breasts beguile him. Have men been obsessed with breasts from the beginning then? Perhaps this obsession is something very base(ic) in humans, and not as culturally layered as I might have thought. Still, one finds plenty of cultures where bare breasted women are common. So, perhaps our cultural obsession with this (speaking if only for myself) is rooted in ancient Sumer. ( )

A demigod king has a destiny of Being Good At Kicking Butts.

4/4 (Great).

Sometimes it reads like the Bible, sometimes it reads like a fairytale, and sometimes it's surprisingly poetic. And it's only about 60 pages long, so it's hard to justify not reading it and finding out what the earliest surviving human literature is like. ( )

I will proclaim to the world the deeds of Gilgamesh. ...

trans. N.K. Sandars (1960)
It is an old story
But one that can still be told
About a man who loved
And lost a friend to death
And learned he lacked the power
To bring him back to life.

trans. Mason (1972)
The Story
of him who knew the most of all men know;
who made the journey; heartbroken; reconciled;

who knew the way things were before the Flood,
the secret things, the mystery; who went

to the end of the earth, and over; who returned,
and wrote the story on a tablet of stone.

trans. Ferry (1992)
He who saw the Deep, the country's foundation,
    (who) knew . . . , was wise in all matters!
(Gilgamesh, who) saw the Deep, the country's foundation
   (who) knew . . . , was wise in all matters!

(He) . . . everywhere . . .
   and (learnt) of everything the sum of wisdom. 
He saw what was secret, discovered what was hidden. 
   he brought back a tale of before the Deluge.

trans. George (1999) 
He had seen everything, had experienced all emotions,
from exaltation to despair, had been granted a vision
into the great mystery, the secret places,
the primeval days before the Flood. ...

trans. Mitchell (2004)

This work is any complete, unabridged translation of the Standard Version of The Epic of Gilgamesh. To quote the FAQ on combining - "A work brings together all different copies of a book, regardless of edition, title variation, or language." Translations of the Old Babylonian Versions should remain separate, as should translations of the early Sumerian Gilgamesh stories and poems from which the epic came to be.
Based on currently accepted LibraryThing convention, the Norton Critical Edition is treated as a separate work, ostensibly due to the extensive additional, original material included.
