Epic of Gilgamesh - Old Babylonian and Standard versions (Illustrated) ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

Reeks: Delphi Poets Series

Regarded by many as the oldest major work of literature, the 'Epic of Gilgamesh' is an ancient Mesopotamian text recorded on stone tablets in the Akkadian language, concerning the adventures of Gilgamesh, King of Uruk. The first surviving version of this combined epic, known as the Old Babylonian version, dates to the 18th century BC, while the later and much longer Standard version dates from the 13th to the 10th centuries BC. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature's finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents both versions of the 'Epic of Gilgamesh', with multiple translations, related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material.
