Gilgamesh: the Story, Sara Ransom
MARCH 31: Gilgamesh: The Story, Sara Ransom
The ancient Babylonian epic poem, over 4,000 years old, relates tales of battle, friendship, loss, immortality, and other religious themes.
Our master storyteller, who claims to be retired, condenses this lengthy poem into its essence within the brief time of the presentation. Next week will feature a discussion of the history of the legends and poetry of the epic.
