    Description"Gilgamesh" is considered one of the masterpieces of world literature, but until now there has not been a version that is a superlative literary text in its own right. Acclaimed by critics and scholars, Stephen Mitchell's version allows us to enter an ancient masterpiece as if for the first time, to see how startlingly beautiful, intelligent, and alive it is.

    Review quote
    "The mysterious, sinewy surge of his verse [is] thoroughly modern, yet an uncanny evocation of the primeval." -- "The Boston Globe"
