GilgameshI cannot accurately judge this piece of literature.  This is what is considering  as epic poetry.  It’s one of the classics making it very hard to accurately rate it.  But I will discuss how I feel about it.  I over all enjoyed the book, but it is so different than current literature.  There is a lot of repetition and in today’s literature there is taboo against repetition whereas here there is a lot of repetition.  Word for word which makes reading this a bit tedious to read.  There is also this acceptance of woman’s sexuality.  That is still, even today in modern society, something that is generally feared.  It’s a very progressive piece of work in many aspects, but also at the same time, very tedious because of it’s repetitive nature.  Overall a great read.
