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

    Benjamin R. Foster

    Second Edition

    “This scrupulous new translation of The Epic of Gilgamesh manages to convey much of the archaic power and even something of the occasional humor of the ancient Mesopotamian poem. 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.” 

    Robert Alter, University of California, Berkeley
