  4. Book ImageThe Epic of Gilgamesh: A Norton Critical Edition

    Benjamin R. Foster

    Second Edition

What is especially valuable is that the translators, by collating passages from the different ancient versions of this epic that have survived only in fragments, have made available many vivid narrative episodes that will be new to most English readers of the poem.”
