9780198149224: The Babylonian Gilgamesh Epic: Introduction, Critical Edition and Cuneiform Texts 2 Volumes

The Babylonian Gilgamesh epic is the oldest long poem in the world, with a history going back four thousand years. It tells the fascinating and moving story of Gilgamesh's heroic deeds and lonely quest for immortality. This book collects for the first time all the known sources in the original cuneiform, including many fragments never published before. The author's personal study of every available fragment has produced a definitive edition and translation, complete with comprehensive introductory chapters that place the poem and its hero in context.

A. R. George is Professor of Babylonian at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

Review:

George will be thanked by Assyriologists for the labour of producing such a comprehensive edition of all known pieces of text, great and small. * The Times Higher Education Supplement * ... exhaustive ... comprehensive ... George is an excellent cuneiformist and his edition is as complete as anyone might hope ... a great achievement. * The Times Higher Education Supplement * ... monumental ... splendid book ... expect to see a revival of Gilgamesh studies in the next few years, renewed and invigorated by George's magnificent study. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
