I thought it would be a good idea to brush on my non existent knowledge of epics I cannot rate the Epic of Gilgamesh because I only listened to it as it was among the first piece of literature known to man and I was curios Plus it was short I am reading the Literature Book an excellent history of the art of the written word and this was the first entry The first category is called heroes and legends and covers titles from 3000 BCE to 1300 CE I am planning to read some of the books mentioned there while I go through that tome so I will be mentioning TLB uite often in the following period Ok back to the Epic of Gilgamesh It was written on tablets in ancient Sumer at around 2100 BCE and discovered in 1853 The fragments tell the story of King Gilgamesh of Uruk an oppressive ruler of how he changes to a hero after he is taught a lesson by the gods It is probably the first bildungsroman in historyI cannot say I enjoyed listening to this Epic but I am glad I did Since I am so confounded I decided not to give any rating My Epic adventure continues with The Iliad which is definitely not short as this one so it will probably takes some time Wish me luck that I will enjoy the process

I will reveal to you a mystery I will tell you a secret of the gods There is something very humbling about reading stories written than 4000 years ago One of the most fascinating things about The Epic of Gilgamesh is how you can easily see the influence it has had on Homer and Judeo Christian Islamic mythology And I get chills just thinking about how this narrative reaches across the millennia and takes us inside the minds of people who lived so long agoThis is one of those cases where I really wish I could read and understand the original text The translation is a little wooden and the rather dramatic series of events reads almost like a textbook I should point out that though a little dry it s not difficult to read at all at least not in the English translation that I read and can be read in a single sitting if you have a couple of hours to spare My favourite part is not surprisingly the relationship between Gilgamesh and Enkidu I definitely find myself leaning towards agreeing with the homoerotic interpretations of their relationship and they almost certainly served as an inspiration for pairings such as Achilles and Patroclus and Jonathan and David Whether they were lovers or not and no one really knows how the Ancient Sumerians would have felt about a gay couple the intensity of Gilgamesh s love for Enkidu whom he loves as a woman is the driving force of the epic This love leads him on a long and strange journey in the hope that he can find a way to defy death An intriguing taleBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
