"It has frequently been remarked that poetry cannot be translated. While this may generally hold true, I would like to claim an exception for the present book. The art works in this edition have managed to grasp - and to convey seemingly without effort - the essence of the Gilgamesh epic as if there were not thousands of years to bridge. Thus they bring one of the most important and beautiful narratives of mankind within reach of a wider public than just the small circle of scholarly researchers. The art works are supported by a concise, poetic summary of the highlights of the epic. The text too does justice to the content and the atmosphere of this beautiful ancient heroic myth. Who could ask for more?" Dr. Marietje Kardaun
