Synopsis: An English-language rendering of the world's oldest epic seeks to convey the work's literary richness and follows the journey of conquest and self-discovery by the heroic king of Uruk, in an edition complemented by an introduction that places the story in its historical, spiritual, and cultural context. By the author and translator of The Book of Job and Tao Te Ching. 50,000 first printing.

From the Inside Flap: "Reading Stephen Mitchell's marvelously clear and vivid rendering makes me feel that I am encountering Gilgamesh for the first time."
—Elaine Pagels, Harrington Professor of Religion, Princeton University

"Stephen Mitchell's Gilgamesh is a wonderful version. It is as eloquent and nuanced as his translations of Rilke. This is certainly the best that I have seen in English."
—Harold Bloom, author of The Western Canon and The Book of J

"Stephen Mitchell's fresh new rendition of mankind’s oldest recorded myth is quite wonderful in its limpidity and the immediacy of its live emotions."
—Peter Matthiessen, author of The Snow Leopard and At Play in the Fields of the Lord

"Here is the wisdom and lyrical beauty of yore rendered, offered us anew, by a distinguished, ever-so-knowing translator and poet who has given so many of us a wondrous education these past years. Mitchell connects us to treasures of the past brought alive by his broad and deep sensibility."
—Robert Coles, author of Lives of Moral Leadership, The Call of Service, and The Spiritual Life of Children and James Agee Professor of Social Ethics, Harvard University
