The Epic of Gilgamesh is an epic poem from Ancient Mesopotamia and is among the earliest known works of literary fiction. Scholars believe that it originated as a series of Sumerian legends and poems about the mythological hero-king Gilgamesh, which were gathered into a longer Akkadian poem much later; the most complete version existing today is preserved on 12 clay tablets in the library collection of the 7th century BCE Assyrian king Ashurbanipal. It was originally titled He who Saw the Deep (Sha naqba īmuru) or Surpassing All Other Kings (Shutur eli sharri). Gilgamesh might have been a real ruler in the late Early Dynastic II period (ca. 27th century BCE).

Book Description:

The epic tale of Gilgamesh is one of the earliest stories in world literature. This 1920 publication presents textual fragments found since the discovery of clay tablets at Nineveh in the 1850s. One episode, reminiscent of Noah's Flood, is of particular interest to biblical scholars and Assyriologists.

About the Author:

Albert Tobias Clay (1866–1925) was an American Semitic archaeologist. Morris Jastrow, Jr., (August 13, 1861 – June 22, 1921) was an American orientalist.
