Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I like to kill shit and watch things die! I gilgameah think about death until someone I love dies–and then I think I’m the only creature who ever experienced loss! I can’t get over it; I can’t accept it; I can’t deal. Epopeyz also such a misogynistic asshole that I treat all women like shit, even the goddess who is the patron of my city–I call her ‘an old fat whore'” In other words, I hated the basic story of the very truncated version I read.


I did think ther “Look at me!

I did think there were some nice elements to Herbert Mason’s translation, like these lines about Humbaba: His shoulders, Like a porter’s under building stones, Were permanently bent by what he bore; He was the slave who did the work for gods But whom the gods would never notice. In the same vein: They returned to Utnapishtim’s house And to his ee wife who seemed to Gilgamesh In her shufflings and her faithful silence Like a servant only there to hold the door.

He hardly knew her as a person, He had talked only to Utnapishtim, Been only with him.

Was she all he needed as companion? Who gives a fuck. I se believe I let this sit on my shelf for thirty-five years, and I can only hope that other versions are far superior to this one. For the time it was written in, it is fantastic. Unfortunately, being forced to read this in grade school and college so many times, I have come to loathe it.

I also didn’t take anything away from this. I wasn’t fascinated or thrilled or laughing or angry or feeling much of anything at all when reading this, which bothers me.

When I read, I like to learn and feel and wonder, and I didn’t experience any of that when reading this uduk. This book was 92 pages of torture and boredom. This epic took place in Uruk a long time ago. It had very little detail and it all went by too quickly. This was not a book I would have wpopeya on my own but I had to because gilgamesn were reading it in school.

The book was about a jerk king named Gilgamesh. He is part god and believes he has no equal. So the gods send someone of his equal to set him straight. His name is Enkidu and he was raised with the animals.

When Gilgamesh and Enkidu meet for the fi This book was 92 pages of torture and boredom.

When Gilgamesh and Enkidu meet for the first time they begin to fight. When Gilgamesh realizes he can’t win they stop fighting and he begins to know he has met his equal. Together they go to the Cedar forest to defeat the dreaded Humbaba where Enkidu almost dies. They go on another quest and kill the bull of heaven. Soon after Enkidu dies and Gilgamesh feels great remorse he goes to try and bring him back to life but meets a man who tells him to move on.

He goes back and is kind to his people. That is about the extent of detail in the book. I don’t like any of the characters because I don’t like the book. The moral is to future kings to be good to their people.

I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone because it would be such a waist of time. Gilgamesh bilgamesh by anonymous taking place in past Uruk or present Iraq is torture in the form of literature.


This book is epooeya a tyrant for a king who learns how to be friendly, how corny.

This story reminded me of a Christmas movie where the grouchy person learned how to love and be kind. Been there, read that! The characters were Gilgamesh, Enkidu and many gods to many too list. This book was just another book with a happy ending. I didn’t like any of the characters, they were so boring and Gilgamesh written by anonymous taking place in past Uruk or present Iraq is torture in the form of literature.

I uruo like any of the characters, they were so boring and the typical characters you suspect to see in these types of books. Like in the Christmas Carol.

Gilgamesh – Wikipedia

I rate this book 1 star. This story was required reading for a World Lit course. Of all that we read, this was torture. The selected translation was set up like reading a play, and perhaps I would have enjoyed it as such.

However, reading it was boring and tedious. It has all the ingredients of epic literature, so if that’s your thing, skip this and read Homer and if you’ve read any of Homer, still, skip this.

On thing, I did find the correlation between the flood story of Gilgamesh and Noah interesting. So boring and not interesting. Does give a good insight to mesopotamia.

Epopeya de Gilgamesh – Wikipedia

Even the explanation wasn’t much help. Better than the Odyssey, still meh. Not what I expected Thought it was a complete version of the poem but turned out to be an analysis of the work.

I disliked the characters very much and found the story boring. But this was really bad. I didn’t enjoy this book. I had to read it for a humanities class several years ago and I still cringe at it. I understand that this a classic piece of literature but it was too hard to follow. Had to read for a class Heroes are supposed to be selfless and fight for what is right.

When I look at all Gilgamesh has done,all I see is a selfish demigod who cared more about obtaining glory than he did serving and protecting his people. I read this book because my background in the classics is almost completely absent and I’m trying to fix that.

I’m planning to go on to the Iliad and Odyssey after this one. If I can manage.
