Críticas It's among the oldest surviving works of Western civilization from before literature was literature. It's my go-to whenever loss and life have tumbled me (often). Amazingly and perhaps depressingly (When will they ever learn?) Gilgamesh tackles all the issues we are dealing with today: a bad leader and how he becomes an enlightened one (here's hoping) environmental degradation class and race -- i.e. who gets to be called human -- lust and love; loss and death. The language is haunting incantatory at the border of song and silence. --Julia Alvarez Andrew George has skillfully bridged the chasm between a scholarly re-edition and a popular work --London Review of Books Humankind's first literary achievement...Gilgamesh should compel us as the well-spring of which we are inheritors...Andrew George provides an excellent critical and historical introduction. --Paul Binding Independent on Sunday This volume will endure as one of the milestones markers...[George] expertly and easily conducts his readers on a delightful and moving epic journey. --Samuel A. Meier Times Literary Supplement Appealingly presented and very readably still comes as an exhilarating surprise to find the actions and emotions of the Sumerian superhero coming to us with absolute immediacy over 30-odd centuries. --Scotsman Andrew George has formed an English text from the best of the tablets differentiating his complex sources but allowing the general reader a clear run at one of the first enduring stories ever told. --Peter Stothard The Times An exemplary combination of scholarship and lucidity...very impressive...invaluable as a convenient guide to all the different strands which came together to produce the work we now call Gilgamesh. --Alan Wall Literary Review Reseña del editor The ancient Sumerian poem The Epic of Gilgamesh is one of the oldest written stories in existence translated with an introduction by Andrew George in Penguin Classics.Miraculously preserved on clay tablets dating back as much as four thousand years the poem of Gilgamesh king of Uruk is the world's oldest epic predating Homer by many centuries. The story tells of Gilgamesh's adventures with the wild man Enkidu and of his arduous journey to the ends of the earth in quest of the Babylonian Noah and the secret of immortality. Alongside its themes of family friendship and the duties of kings The Epic of Gilgamesh is above all about mankind's eternal struggle with the fear of death.The Babylonian version has been known for over a century but linguists are still deciphering new fragments in Akkadian and Sumerian. Andrew George's gripping translation brilliantly combines these into a fluid narrative and will long rank as the definitive English Gilgamesh. If you enjoyed The Epic of Gilgamesh you might like Homer's Iliad also available in Penguin Classics.'A masterly new verse translation'The Times'Andrew George has skilfully bridged the gap between a scholarly re-edition and a popular work'London Review of Books Biografía del autor Andrew George is Reader in Assyriology at SOAS (the School of Oriential and African Studies) in London and is also an Honorary Lecturer at the University's Institute of Archaeology. His research has taken him many times to Iraq to visit Babylon and other ancient sites and to museums in Baghdad Europe and North America to read the original clay tablets on which the scribes of ancient Iraq wrote.
