Introduction to the book Epic of Gilgamesh by Georg Burkhart p
The book of Gil Gomesh, which miraculously exists on pottery tablets dating back almost four thousand years, is the oldest epic in the world, dating back centuries before Homer. The story of Gilgamesh’s adventures with the savage Enkidu and his arduous journey to the end of the earth in search of the Babylonian Noah and the mystery of immortality. The epic of Gilgamesh, along with the themes of family, friendship and the duties of kings, is more than anything about the eternal struggle of mankind with the fear of death.

The Babylonian version has been known for more than a century, but linguists are still deciphering new pieces in Akkadian and Sumerian. This book brilliantly combines these in a fluent narrative.
Also provide up-to-date translations of award-winning translators.
Gilgamesh is originally the work of an anonymous Babylonian poet who lived more than 3,700 years ago. This is the story of a man’s struggle against death. The hero of the epic, who was not content with the eternal fame he had gained through reckless deeds, pursued immortality himself and crossed the earth and beyond.

Summary of Gilgamesh’s book
In ancient times, in the land of Uruk, there was a powerful king named Gilgamesh, who has been around for a long time. Two-thirds of his body was divine and one-third was human and mortal, and he had this dual quality throughout his life. Like the gods, he was strong and glorious and tried to remain immortal, but he did not leave the part of his body that was human and eventually died.

Gilgamesh was the king of Uruk from the beginning of his life and was considered an authoritarian and dreadful ruler. He enslaved all the young men and abducted girls and women to serve in his palace. All his servants were dissatisfied with him.
Eventually, everyone survived him and took refuge in the gods. Anu, the Lord of the heavens, heard their glory and was moved by their misery. He, in turn, grew up in the skirt of the goddess Aurro, who in the past, had created people from mud and breathed life into them.

Excerpts from Gilgomesh’s book

Three thousand years before a man named Jesus son of Mary created a new era in the history of human life, in the valleys of the two great rivers Tigris and Euphrates, great civilization, like great arteries, connected large areas of ancient human habitation. And the living elements that were the great legacy of ancient Sumerian society, as living factors, played a very surprising role in building the cultural life of the nations that later became the scene of history.
Poetry, philosophy, Debon, astronomy, geometry, and history flourished in the fruitful pains of these two intestines with the mature wisdom of the people, of whom now, in our day, there are only a few signs of their great effort, and as a noble legacy. It was remembered for generations to come before the history of human rights became known as the laws of Hammurabi in the millennium BC. The Jewish people clashed with fate in the vast deserts of Palestine, and Job mourned the tragedy of human life with a sorrowful hymn.
