The Babylonian Epic of Creation, Enuma elish, tells the story of primordial divine struggles among the gods and the successive creation of the world composed of the subterranean ocean, the earth and the sky, culminating in the rise of the god Marduk to supreme kingship over the world. Texts and fragments, including some three dozens of hitherto unpublished, are assembled in a score edition (in contrast to the composite text of previous editions), to enable the reader a complete overview of the textual material of the epic and to dive into this stream of tradition. The translation bears witness of the poetic structure. Bookseller Inventory #

About this title:

Synopsis: Der babylonische Schopfung-Epos "Enuma elish" erzahlt die Geschichte der ur-gottlichen Kampfe unter den Gottern und der sukzessiven Schopfung der Welt, die sich aus dem unterirdischen Ozean, dem Himmel und der Erde zusammengesetzt. Hohepunkt ist der Aufstieg des Gottes Marduk zum hochsten Konigtum der Welt. Texte und Fragmente, darunter auch einige Dutzende bisher unveroffentlichte, sind in einer Partitur-Ausgabe montiert (im Gegensatz den fruheren Ausgaben), um dem Leser eine vollstandige Ubersicht uber den Textmaterial des Epos zu verdeutlichen. Die Ubersetzung bezeugt die poetische Struktur des Textes.
