Gilgamesh: A Reader provides 25 interpretative essays on the epic that stands at the dawn of literature. This collection is designed to enrich the reader's background with selections from experts on Near Eastern literature; to draw connections between Gilgamesh and other literature with interdisciplinary selections; to enliven interest in the world's oldest epic; and to stimulate thought and discussion. Influences of Gilgamesh on later literature, philological and literary studies since 1982, and Gilgamesh from other perspectives are the three broad areas covered.

From the Publisher:

The Epic of Gilgamesh is often neglected in studies of literature, mythology, and religion because many general readers, teachers, and students lack familiarity with the ancient Near Eastern milieu from which the epic springs. This reader elucidates Gilgamesh's context and connection to later literatures. Features include: - An introduction that describes the difficulties of translating Gilgamesh and discusses the controversial "flood episode" - 25 interpretive essays by Assyriologists and nonspecialists - Comprehensive Gilgamesh bibliography to 1994, with over 1500 entries

From the Author:

"It should be emphasized at the outset that all three sections [of the reader] are selections from a large group of Gilgamesh studies. While they represent the main trends in Gilgamesh study since 1982, they constitute only a small sampling of the work on Gilgamesh. . . . One of the major discoveries in this collection is the extent to which specialists and nonspecialists dealing with Gilgamesh have ignored one another. The first section will show that one Assyriologist will use the earlier work of Assyriologists as a basis of any new investigation, but will rarely comment on the work of outsiders. The nonspecialists, for their part, read the Assyriological work very selectively. And the astonishing - and healthy - proliferation of Gilgamesh translations, especially since the 1980s, shows that some are produced by Assyriologists and some are produced by translators who know no Akkadian at all. If this collection has a purpose beyond that of presenting the insights of many gifted readers of this ancient poem, it would be to establish a common ground where Assyriologists and nonspecialists interested in Gilgamesh may meet. From the Author's Introduction.
