EBOOK Gilgamesh

GilgameshIt predates the BIBLE the ILIAD and the ODYSSE I received a digital copy from a Goodreads giveawayI was familiar with some of the story of Gilgamesh but this is the first time reading the story in it's entirety Gilgamesh is interesting in its historical context than in the story telling itself If you have a knowledge of the Bible you will recognize uite a few similar stories especially the FloodThe repetitive lines in the story were cumbersome at times but overall I'm glad I've finally worked my way through it
