The Gilgamesh Epic

Well before the Illiad and the Odyssey were written down, the peoples of Mesopotamia narrated stories of cunning heroes and gods, adventure and friendship, death and immortality.

This unit will examine the Epic of Gilgamesh, a masterpiece of literature, which tells of the adventures of the renowned king of the city of Uruk in Mesopotamia and his wild-man friend Enkidu.
