The ancient Mesopotamian tale of Gilgamesh is the oldest existing written epic of any human civilization. Gilgamesh, King of Uruk, goes in search of the elixir of eternal life held by Utnapishtim. This story was known far and wide in the Ancient Near East before becoming lost and forgotten. In the modern era archaeologists painstakingly deciphered cunieform tablets to bring the epic to life again. David Damrosch of Columbia University has written, “Gilgamesh’s quest may have failed, but along the way he learns lessons about just and unjust rule, political seductions and sexual politics, and the vexed relations among humanity, the gods, and the world of nature.”
