Synopsis: The longing stretch toward the infinite . . . the reluctant embrace of the temporal. . . . This is the eternal lot of mankind. This is The Epic of Gilgamesh. Literature's first chronicle of search for meaning was born in the Cradle of Civilization over 4,000 years ago. Jackson's poetic rendition of humanity's first epic captures the passion and pathos of the search for the province and parameters of human existence, including an account of a great flood, paradise lost, man's relationship with gods and goddesses, and the inevitability of mortality. The universal themes explored in Gilgamesh continue to intrigue us in the 20th century.

From the Publisher: This Deluxe Paperback edition aims to reanimate the story of Gilgamesh and Enkidu for modern readers. The poetic rendition brings words to life in indelible images. A historical and cultural introduction provides the context for the narrative. The result is a new edition that delights, informs and stimulates readers to a new appreciation of this age-old tale. This edition contains extensive resources for the first-time reader: - Introduction by Dr. Robert D. Biggs of The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago - Highly engaging text that is both lusty and tender - Historical and literary overview - 18 ancient world illustrations and 15 original, 4-color woodcut prints - Glossary with pronunciation key.
