READ & DOWNLOAD Gilgamesh: A New English Version Join or create book clubs Ï 6 REVIEW REVIEW Gilgamesh: A New English Version í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB This brilliant new treatment of the oldest epic in the world is a literary event Esteemed translator and best selling author Stephen Mitchell breathes life into a year old classic delivering. Thank God for the translation and literary explanations Mitchell puts on this bookThe first half of the book is Mitchell s take on the book where he surmises what is going on and then expounds on the depths of the meaning behind it It s an easy and straight forward explanation that took me maybe half of a solid day of readingThen there s the second half which is the actual Epic of Gilgamesh as it was translated Also very straight forward but without Mitchell s behind the scenes explanation it just reads like a one dimensional storySO thank God Mitchell wrote the explanations how he did easy to read took all of a day to read the entire book as about 13 of it is simple references because without Mitchell s explanations to me and I imagine a lot of other people the depth of Gilgamesh would have been immediately lost

READ & DOWNLOAD Gilgamesh: A New English Version Join or create book clubs Ï 6 REVIEW REVIEW Gilgamesh: A New English Version í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Abylonia and his journey of self discovery Along the way Gilgamesh discovers that friendship can bring peace to a whole city and that wisdom can be found only when the uest for it is abandone. This is really a great version of thus epic story A perfect narration and very pleading bonus material of Stephen taking listeners through the epic and making it even accessible and thoroughly enjoyable I really recommend it to anyone who may have heard the name Gilgamesh or Uruk and wants to know You will not be disappointed The only fault I can find is with the CD case where cds tend to fall out of the inner card insert in a nicely decorated card case Not much of an issue though
