This classic work has served students of Akkadian literature as a useful sourcebook and as a model publication for the study of a specific corpus of cuneiform literature. These timeless proverbs, instructive precepts, and ancient fables demonstrate a rich heritage in the Mesopotamian development of this genre. Lambert's focused collection also provides scholars with a unique comparative reference for those studying biblical wisdom literature. An Eisenbrauns classic reprint.

Acerca de


In Babylonian studies 'Wisdom' is used to cover a group of texts similar in scope to the Biblical Wisdom Books: discussions of suffering, teaching on the good life, fables or context literature and proverbs. These texts are not only of considerable literary merit, but are also of great importance to all students of the ancient Near East in revealing the thought patterns of the ancient Babylonians. In addition to the cuneiform texts, copied direct from the tablets, each work is given in translation, and an introductory chapter sets forth the cosmological background against which the works are to be set. Philological notes and a glossary complete the volume.
