THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH

Hey! Welcome back. I have been busy finishing the third draft of my book, so little time for posts. But now I'm back!!


The next few posts will be about the first masterpiece literature in world history - the epic of Gilgamesh.


The story raises questions still relevant to the modern reader. Gilgamesh spends many years going on adventures with his friend Enkidu, but when his friend dies, he finds himself unable to cope with his own mortality. He then starts wandering the Earth to find answers, hoping - in vain - to gain immortality.


The story can be found with an easy google search and only takes an afternoon to read. Well worth your time.
