Summary: The Epic of Gilgamesh, which dates from the third millennium BC, is one of the finest surviving epic poems in world literature.

Miraculously preserved on clay tablets deciphered only in the last century, the cycle of poems collected around the character of Gilgamesh, the great king of Uruk, tells of his long and arduous journey to the Spring of Youth, of his encounters with monsters and gods and of his friendship with Enkidu, the wild man from the hills.
